Accountancy & Finance roles are in high demand across Northern Ireland in 2018
The latest NIJobs Jobs Report with Ulster Bank reveals almost a 20% rise in job listings for the Northern Irish marketplace, taking the total number of jobs advertised in the region to a new high.
More specifically, job opportunities in Accountancy & Finance are expected to increase rapidly in Northern Ireland from now until 2024.
The new report suggests that numerous local businesses are in expansion mode for 2018. As our Riada Office Business Unit Manager, Nyree Quinn comments...
"It’s a clear sign that companies are continuing to grow and are investing in the right people. Riada has seen an increase in job opportunities within the office environment over 2018.”
Over the past 12 months, Riada has witnessed the significant increase as companies understand the need to have strong candidates in order to drive their business forward and has established a recruitment division, Riada Office to specialise in HR, Accounting & Office services.
Due to demand, candidates are now considering both temporary & fixed term positions as they provide flexibility and good work life balance. Candidates looking for part time work, people who want change in their working routine and indeed even recent HR graduates looking to gain experience to further their career, are all seeking opportunities of both a temporary and permanent nature.
Construction, architecture & property also posted their highest number of listings to date. Meanwhile, notably engineering and production, manufacturing & materials handling went close to their recent highs. The latter is indicative of continued strong demand for exports, buoyed up by robust global growth. There was also a surge in demand for hospitality, not surprising given the number of new hotels due to open this year.
Using the economist’s jargon, Northern Ireland currently has a tight labour market which is at or approaching full employment. Full employment is the condition in which virtually everyone who is able to and willing to work is employed. Meanwhile, a ‘tight’ labour market has more jobs than workers and workers rather than employers have the upper hand when unemployment is low and skills shortages are prevalent. Staff retention will be more challenging and wages will likely have to rise.
