Ireland FDI at All-Time High

Foreign direct investment in Ireland is at “an all-time high” with the number of jobs advertised in the financial sector during the first quarter of 2017 was up 60% year on year.
Overall jobs postings in the CPL Resources Employment Market Monitor grew by 14% in the first quarter of 2017, which is strong compared to quarterly growth of between 6 and 10% in each quarter of 2016, INA reported.
The strongest growth for the first quarter of 2017 was in accountancy, finance and banking, which was up 60% year on year. This was the fourth quarter in a row that the sector experienced strong growth. Growth was also strong in science, engineering and supply chain (19%).
IT jobs showed a small fluctuation but, coming from a very high starting base, the change was indicative of the ongoing challenges of meeting the demand for IT candidates. Sales and marketing jobs postings saw a small year on year decline of 7% for the first since 2014.
Nearly all employers said that anti-Brexit feeling would make the republic more attractive to top global talent.
CPL resources director Peter Cosgrove said: “Potentially there will be lots of jobs coming to Ireland, especially in the financial services area. The key issue is around the inability of banks to trade the euro once Britain is out of the EU.
“FDI investment in Ireland is at an all-time high, providing high-value employment here. However, even with the expected influx of talent, more than 60% of employers believe it is an employee’s market, meaning they are still struggling to get the staff they need at the right price.”
