Job openings up a fifth

Professional job vacancies are up 21pc in one year and the construction industry is rebounding, according to a new survey.

The recovery in the Irish economy has gained pace as evidenced by the big increase in professional jobs on offer, according to the Morgan McKinley Irish Employment Monitor for July.

"Ireland's revival is taking hold as evidenced by the swell in the number of professional jobs vacancies across industries from financial services to pharma to ICT, engineering, science and back support compared to this time last year," said Morgan McKinley Ireland Chief Operations Officer, Karen O'Flaherty.
