IrishJobs.ie have released new research which shows that almost 50% (49.2%) of people (both employed and unemployed) don’t believe any political party has a strong job creation policy.
This is according to their latest Jobseeker Sentiment Survey which has been released a day before the general election. It shows that 36% of people feel that a new Government will not have an impact on job creation while only 20% feel our political parties are equipped with adequate job creation strategies.
Twenty eight per cent believe Fine Gael are the best party to create employment. Ths is followed by Sinn Féin on 16% with Fianna Fáil and the Social Democrats tied on 12% and Labour on 8%.
In total, 46% of people believe the jobs market is continuously improving and 60% of unemployed people said they will not emigrate for work in 2016.
General Manager IrishJobs.ie, Orla Moran says, "The latest IrishJobs.ie Jobseeker Sentiment Survey highlights some interesting views amongst the general public in respect of job creation ahead of the forthcoming General Election.
"While people’s levels of confidence in the ability of our political system to create employment varies, what cannot be refuted is the sustained growth we are seeing in the Irish economy which is very much evident in the continued increases in jobs advertised online."
