Retail Ireland's mission is to support and protect the social and economic importance of the Irish retail industry.

RI IBEC-Retail-Ireland-Skillnet
The group’s public affairs and representation activities are focussed on articulating, protecting and advancing retail’s position, influencing proposals that impact upon members’ interests and engaging with Government and key decision makers to ensure that the retail industry is properly considered when new laws and regulations are debated.

Retail contributes €30 billion in total sales and 14% of national employment, given this significant economic contribution it is essential that the sector retains its ability to grow, create jobs and deliver value and choice to Irish consumers.

The Retail Ireland Skillnet team work closely with Retail Ireland to ensure current and future skills needs are addressed through the offering of work-based training programmes. Our collective vision is to professionalise the industry, making retail the career of choice.
