The Robert Walters Global Salary Survey for 2017 has been released. The annual survey contains recruitment market updates, hiring advice and benchmarks salaries across our global markets.

Here we discuss the outlook for Ireland in 2017.

Hiring trends across Ireland

Ireland’s recruitment market was exceptionally buoyant in 2016, with confidence among jobseekers and businesses growing rapidly across all sectors. We anticipate strong economic growth in 2017, leading to an increase in hiring levels. However, a shortage of specialist professionals will remain a critical issue.

Skills shortages were widely experienced in sectors such as IT, finance and regulatory affairs, and we witnessed increased competition amongst hiring managers seeking to secure talented individuals, in particular those with international experience.

Counter-offers were rife as organisations struggled to retain their talented workforce. As a result, staff retention was high on priority lists for hiring managers across Ireland.
