Age 'hits job chances'

AN individual's chance of regaining employment decreases with age, new research from the Central Bank has outlined.

The report on the Irish labour market also pointed out that the longer a person remains unemployed, the harder it will be for them to find work. People with lower levels of education are also less likely to be re-employed compared with those with higher education, the report added.

While unemployment is gradually falling as the economy gradually picks up, the Central Bank has warned that this will not be enough.
