Looking for a job? Professional services and the financial sector have the most jobs

PROFESSIONAL JOB VACANCIES rose by 7% in April according to the latest Morgan McKinley employment monitor.

The monitor says that there are 15% fewer people looking for jobs compared to March, reflecting the drop in unemployment.

As Brexit contingency plans continue employers are seeking more professionals in corporate finance, consulting and risk management but not for restructuring or insolvency roles.

Those with second languages continue to be sought, with strong demand for jobseekers with multilingual skills particularly for German, Nordic and Dutch languages. In recent weeks there has been an increase in demand for Portuguese, Spanish and Dutch speakers.

Trayc Keevans of Morgan McKinley said that the figures reflected a financial sector gearing up for Brexit as well as taking in foreign investment.

“The continuing improvement in economic circumstances is feeding into a buoyant professional services recruitment market. We are seeing a strong pipeline of interest from abroad as potential inward investment projects seek information and guidance on skills availability in Ireland.

“This is a mixture of standard FDI interest and Brexit related concern on the part of international companies. We are also seeing strong organic growth in the Irish professional jobs market where companies have a positive outlook and are resourcing their requirements accordingly.”

The monitor says that companies seeking finance professionals are doing so on the basis of projected growth, as opposed to consolidating their current staff numbers.
