Fall in number of jobseekers to fill professional roles

THE NUMBER of professionals seeking jobs was down by a fifth in June, as the Irish market for experienced professionals became increasingly tapped out.

"Many employers, particularly those in the multi-national sector, are seeking experienced professionals already employed and hence the pace of the market and recruitment cycle are typically slower and longer," said recruitment consultancy Morgan McKinley's Karen O'Flaherty.

Despite fewer jobseekers, the number of professional jobs available in April, May and June was up by a tenth. Skills in demand include finance, IT and marketing.

Online, the number of jobs advertised was up by 7pc.
