The World’s largest job site, Indeed have today released research which shows the Top 10 open roles in Ireland, showing where the greatest number of job opportunities exist.    
 
According to the report, Sales Manager roles feature most prominently, reflecting growth across a broad range of sectors.

Registered Nurses take second place on the list, highlighting the high demand for nursing staff in Ireland as in other European countries. Software Engineers and Computer Support Specialists also feature prominently on the list. 
 
The report indicates that as Ireland’s unemployment falls, employers will find it increasingly difficult to source suitable candidates to fill their open roles. They are advising companies to develop smart ways of finding this talent or face missing out on growth.

Indeed further claim that international companies located in Ireland now depend on a strong supply of multilingual talent to fuel this growth. Sales and customer service roles, as well as jobs in tech and financial services, all feature prominently as the most available positions in Ireland. 
 
Commenting on the data, Indeed’s EMEA economist Mariano Mamertino said, "As this pool of talent becomes increasingly global, Irish employers must compete with companies across Europe to fill their vacancies. In the quest for qualified candidates, companies that are most successful in attracting high skilled emigrants back to Ireland, and workers from other parts of the world, could stand to benefit the most."

A list of the Top 10 Open Roles include:
1. Sales Managers
2. Registered Nurses
3. Software Engineers / Developers
4. Accountants and Auditors
5. Customer Service Representatives
6. Computer Support Specialists
7. Marketing Managers
8. Chefs and Head Cooks
9. Bookkeeping, Accounting and Auditing Clerks
10. Engineering Managers
