This week in Careers, we celebrated Fintech Week by diving into the career possibilities offered by innovations in finance.

Last month, we examined the future of work as a whole during Siliconrepublic.com’s Future of Work Week.

This week brings you yet another exciting theme, this time specifically focusing on the latest developments at the forefront of the fintech industry, and how these developments have the potential to disrupt the financial services sector.

One of the most fascinating technologies being increasingly implemented in the finance industry is blockchain, and so we spoke to Lory Kehoe, EMEA blockchain lead at Deloitte Ireland, about what working in a blockchain lab is like.

Also providing an insight into the fintech industry, Hays’ Carl Piesse detailed the top five most promising careers in fintech.

If these insights sufficiently whet your appetite, we compiled some of the top employers hiring in fintech and finance.

There were plenty of opportunities for those looking for work outside the fintech industry, too, with 10 tech roles created in Carlow this week and more than 30 positions announced in Fermanagh and Omagh.
