St Stephen’s Green Trust

Spotlight on the experiences of Travellers in employment:
A Qualitative Study

St. Stephen’s Green Trust (SSGT) is a charitable foundation which respects human dignity and is committed to helping create a society where the dignity of all can be realised through social justice and inclusive nurturing communities.

St Stephen’s Green Trust wish to commission a qualitative study examining Travellers experiences of employment. This research project should contribute to knowledge around cultural specificities of Travellers in employment and build on research to date.

As one of the most marginalised and excluded groups in Ireland, Travellers are one of the key focuses of our work. It is intended this study will assist SSGT in contributing to a goal of increased participation of Travellers in employment.


Over 80% (8,500) of Travellers in the labour force (10,650) are unemployed. Factors such as severe educational disadvantage, widespread and endemic inequality and discrimination in the workplace all contribute to this situation.


This research aims to address the gap in knowledge around Travellers’ lived experiences of the labour market, and to provide insight to policymakers, employers and unions on the issue.
