Life sciences drive job availability up 10 percent

Life sciences drive job availability up 10 percent

A triumvirate of financial services, professional services and life sciences have helped push the number of jobs available in Ireland up 10 percent with areas outside of Dublin feeling the benefit.

That 10 percent rise is comparing September 2015 to 2014, with the number of professionals entering the jobs market up a massive 20 percent on last year.

When looking at areas around Ireland, Cork’s job vacancies have nearly doubled since last year, with Limerick up over one-fifth.

The life science aspect, given the spread of companies throughout the west of the country, has helped bring jobs outside of Dublin, “attracting candidates from Dublin and internationally,” claims Morgan McKinley, who composed the research.

IT, as ever, is on the rise with a jump of 5 percent of jobs outside of Dublin since last month, with demand for Java developers continuing to rise over the past three months.

Other areas of promise include accountants of all levels, language skills and big data, the latter of which has seen demand in SQL and newer variants.

This is resulting in continued demand for software developers and QA professionals, something echoed by an announcement yesterday by Test Triangle.

“Ireland remains the location of choice for many international life sciences companies and 2015 has witnessed a regular stream of positive jobs announcements, the majority of which have been outside the major urban centres,” says Karen O’Flaherty, COO of Morgan McKinley Ireland.

“We are seeing a continuation in tech where there is a huge demand for permanent positions in niche areas like Java, with not enough professionals available to fill the positions.”
