Our salary data covers this broad range of sectors which we have segmented in to key markets and professions as well as looking at regional factors that affect salary within Ireland.

In developing this detailed document, we have made every effort to provide relevant insights for both our clients and candidates. Employers will find value in this guide as we have highlighted the important factors employees consider when accepting a new role. We also found that company culture is playing a bigger role than ever with 57% of candidates consider culture as an essential factor when looking for a new role.

One of our major findings highlight how candidates are very fluid, ready and looking to grasp the next opportunity that will bring better career prospects, career progression and compensation. Hence there is now a distinct need for a renewed emphasis on and new ways of recruiting, on boarding and retaining top performers in the workplace.

Candidates, we have identified the key skills employers look for in today’s market and highlighted where the biggest skill shortages lie according to the companies we surveyed.
