Ancestry seeks experienced genealogists for Dublin office

AncestryProGenealogists is expanding into the Dublin office and will be adding a number of genealogists to its team.

Initially, two vacancies for Associate Genealogist Researchers are being advertised, plus two positions for Assistant Genealogists.

The new team members will principally research Irish family history in liaison with existing AncestryProGenealogists in the Salt Lake City office. There will be no client interfacing – that will be handled via SLC.

Ancestry's International Recruiter, Carolyn Mercer, told Irish Genealogy News that applicants for the role of Associate Genealogist will be graduates with two or three years experience. While the main focus of that experience should be with Irish records, some familiarity with North American Irish immigrant research will be expected. Languages and/or familiarity with family history records in other parts of Europe would be a bonus.

Assistant Genealogists positions are entry-level roles.

All the positions are full-time and permanent. They're based at Ancestry's smart offices on Sir John Rogerson's Quay and come with a range of benefits such as you'd expect from a major international employer. Click the links above for full job and person specs and details of how to apply.
