Demand continues for specialist graduates

A recent report has highlighted the continuing demand for specialist graduates in Ireland, particularly in Accounting and Finance and IT.
Furthermore, there is now also an increased requirement for talent in the audit, supply chain, HR and Research and Development markets.
