Morgan McKinley Ireland have today released their Employment Monitor for September 2015. 
 
The monitor shows 10% more professional opportunities available in September 2015 compared to the same month last year. 
 
While there was a 20% increase in the number of professionals entering the jobs market this month. Outside of Dublin, jobs growth has moved from a period of recovery to one of steady growth.
 
The positive start to 2015 for regional jobs growth has continued throughout the year, driven by financial services, life sciences and professional services sector growth.

Professional job vacancies almost doubled in Cork compared to September 2014 while  Limerick saw an increase of 21% compared to the same month last year.

The professional services sector has seen continued growth outside of Dublin as practices hire cross all levels. The traditional accountancy firms are evolving and require a broader skill set than previously from HR to IT, as well as finance, digital analytics and marketing.
 
Demand for accountants is high across the country, with multiple job offers for qualified candidates.

Furthermore, job flow within the IT sector generally outside of Dublin was up 5% on the previous month.
