Space for Everyone
Armed with a laptop and a Wi-Fi connection, geographic distance is no barrier to your career. There are several co-working hubs dotted around the county, so you could be sitting in an office overlooking the Lakes of Killarney while working remotely for a tech startup based in Dublin, be it Ireland or Texas!
Working from your kitchen might seem like the ideal solution, but distraction, poor infrastructure, and isolation can all push you to look for a work space outside your home. Kerry hubs offer co-working office spaces that solve your problem. Remote employees, freelancers, and start-up entrepreneurs use shared office space to build communities of like-minded individuals. They get inexpensive access to high-quality office facilities, as well as support and social engagement from other hub users.
Hubs allow people working remotely to achieve a lot more than they would achieve on their own. They promote community, collaboration, accessibility and rural revitalisation. Share ideas in a modern, comfortable environment providing all the advantages of a typical modern office (without the high costs), combined with the flexibility and independence of remote working.
Kerry is well placed to leverage hubs as a way of encouraging the full talent potential of people keen to live and work here. Rural areas are becoming revitalised and the work-life balance is being restored on the strength of hubs in various local towns.
