RESILIENT JOBS MARKET SEES 56% RISE IN VACANCIES – IRISHJOBS.IE JOBS INDEX

RESILIENT JOBS MARKET SEES 56% RISE IN VACANCIES – IRISHJOBS.IE JOBS INDEX

Ireland’s employment market experienced a 56 per cent increase in job vacancies for the period of July to September according to the latest IrishJobs.ie Jobs Index which is based on an analysis of job data on their e-recruitment platform.

Despite the challenging economic environment, a number of sectors have experienced year-on-year and quarter-on-quarter growth. Amongst the most resilient sectors are IT (up 83% QoQ), construction and property (up 42%), engineering and utilities (up 29%), Pharma (up 26%) and medicine and healthcare (up 10%).

Other sectors to experience relatively small declines in year-on-year terms and strong quarter-on-quarter growth include marketing (up 220% QoQ), retail and wholesaling (up 102%), manufacturing and production (up 30% QoQ) and education and childcare (up 147% QoQ).

REMOTE WORKING ROLES ON THE RISE

In light of Covid-19 restrictions, Irish employers and employees have been forced to quickly adapt to working remotely. Tellingly, this trend is reflected in the Q3 Jobs Index location data; remote working roles are up 112% quarter-on-quarter and 1264% year-on-year.

Dublin (up 57% QoQ), Cork (up 36% QoQ), Limerick (up 76% QoQ) and Galway (75% QoQ) have all seen strong Q3 growth as the economy has reopened and found a semblance of normality in recent months.
