Economist with Indeed, Pawel Adrjan, said:

The rise in job postings in facilities management could be related to the increasing workforce and office construction boom in Ireland, leading to more demand for on-site management of workspaces.

"As employers compete to attract talent, many have overhauled the traditional office space, opting to include areas where employees can socialise, as well as on-site gyms, modern canteens and even meditation rooms.
