My boyfriend and I are seriously considering emigrating to Vancouver, Canada from Ireland in the next year or two. What is the employment scene like there at the moment?
I would prefer working as a jewellery designer in-house for someone else or as self-employed/freelance. I'm self-employed the last two years and have other experience - bench work, workshop management, project management, admin, so could work in those areas too.
From browsing job sites most advertised work seems to be retail with the occasional bench position.
