The latest Employment Monitor conducted by Morgan McKinley shows the availability of professional job opportunities rose by 2.4% to 11,909 month-on-month in July with pharmaceuticals, medical devices and IT all continuing to be the main drivers of hiring activity in the country.

Compliance, risk and tax experts also remain in demand, while people with language skills – in particular Turkish, Dutch and Nordic languages – were also highly sought after.

The monitor also shows a 2% fall in the number of professionals seeking new roles in July to 7,635 when compared with June, which it largely blamed on seasonal factors.

However, that figure also fell year on year, with 19% fewer professionals seeking roles when compared to July 2015.
