Recruitment firm sees noticeable rise in job vacancies

Recruitment agency Servisource says Ireland’s jobs market is showing positive trends that should continue for 2014 .

The company is currently recruiting candidates for more than 107 vacancies, 62 of which have become available in the last 30 days.

Declan Murphy CEO Servisource HR Group said: "With Ireland officially exiting the bailout and multinational companies once again choosing the country as a desired location, there has been a steady increase in staff requirements.

"However, with many of our youngest and brightest working overseas, we have also noticed a considerable shortage of skilled candidates, particularly in the areas of construction and nursing."

"Roughly 55% of the positions we are recruiting for at present have gone live in the last month alone."

He said the jobs are long-term and permanent in sectors such as nursing, IT, accounting and construction.

However, he went on to say that there is a considerable shortage of skilled candidates, particularly in the areas of construction and nursing.

He said: "Many of these people will be coming home to spend Christmas with family. We are inviting them to contact us and let us see if we can find a position that is suitable for them.

"Ireland is finally recovering from the recession."
