Acquiring a work permit once arrived in Ireland visa-free

Good day All

I am a Professional Accountant from South Africa and looking at potentially moving to Ireland, preferably Dublin.

I have found that most employers require having an existing work permit before appointing. This is rather puzzling seeing that you will have a hard time acquiring a work permit from here without a job offer from an Irish company.

Travelling from South Africa to Ireland does not require a visa, but I am unsure if you can start the process of acquiring a work permit once over there and speaking to potential employers.

If there is anyone who has gone through the same process or has the relevant insight, I would appreciate the feedback.
