Firms in the technology sector lead the hiring surge


According to a new survey, 42% of IT and technology companies are actively recruiting new employees.

According to the latest ManpowerGroup Employment Outlook Survey, employers across all industries plan to significantly increase their workforces in the second quarter of 2022.

Based on responses from 411 employers in Ireland, the study asks whether companies plan to increase or decrease their workforce in the next quarter.

John Galvin, managing director of ManpowerGroup Ireland, said the pandemic has changed the way technology and IT are used throughout all sectors and has increased the demand for tech skills in all of those companies.

“The tech sector was an early adopter of remote working prior to the pandemic, and we’re seeing tech companies continue to offer remote and hybrid work opportunities as offices have reopened,” said Mr. Galvin.

A lack of qualified workers is putting employers under pressure, so this is an important consideration in creating new positions that are more attractive to job seekers and expanding the pool of available talent.

Employers in Dublin are increasingly hiring workers from outside the city, resulting in an increase in the number of jobs in other parts of the country.

Additionally, only 72% of employers are having trouble finding qualified candidates to fill open positions, down from 72% in the first quarter of the year.

I am confident in my writing skills, and I can effectively pour my thoughts out in writing and express myself so that the reader relates to it and is intrigued by the content. I love to play with my pet cat, and she is a darling to me. The thing that I dislike the most is being distracted when you are in the zone.
