Ireland's unemployment rate dropped as to 6.6pc in February - the lowest recorded since July 2008 - but where are the best available opportunities?
On the back of latest figures from the Central Statistics Office, Indeed job site has revealed the Top 10 open roles here.
The information has been collated from analysis of thousands of job postings available on Indeed.com in Ireland over a six month period.
Perhaps unsurprisingly, software engineers and computer support specialists feature quite high on the list - but actually miss the top two slots which have been filled by sales manager roles and positions for registered nurses.
Take a look at the Top 10 open roles here.
1. Sales Managers
2. Registered Nurses
3. Software Engineers / Developers
4. Accountants and Auditors
5. Customer Service Representatives
6. Computer Support Specialists
7. Marketing Managers
8. Chefs and Head Cooks
9. Bookkeeping, Accounting and Auditing Clerks
10. Engineering Managers
Indeed’s EMEA economist Mariano Mamertino said: “As Ireland’s unemployment falls, employers will find it increasingly difficult to source suitable candidates to fill their open roles. Companies must develop smart ways of finding this talent or face missing out on growth”.
“International companies located in Ireland now depend on a strong supply of multilingual talent to fuel this growth. Sales and customer service roles, as well as jobs in tech and financial services, all feature prominently as the most available positions in Ireland.”
He continues: “As this pool of talent becomes increasingly global, Irish employers must compete with companies across Europe to fill their vacancies. In the quest for qualified candidates, companies that are most successful in attracting high skilled emigrants back to Ireland, and workers from other parts of the world, could stand to benefit the most.”
