It’s been another incredible week for the Irish jobs market as hundreds of roles have been added, with every corner of the island cashing in.
In recent weeks and months, these Friday round-ups have focused almost exclusively on career advice – and this one won’t be much different – but occasionally we have to break from tradition when something incredible happens. Like 900 jobs being announced in Ireland in a single week.
In addition to a few big announcements from Pearson, Aspire and SAP, smaller announcements came from fintech firm InfoHedge, e-commerce company Rakuten, aviation recruiter CAE Parc Aviation, recruitment software company EngageSmith, infosec experts AlienVault and engineering firm Designer Group.
Furthermore, Brexit and the upcoming roll-out of GDPR have had a beneficial knock-on effect on Irish jobs, as Morgan McKinley reports an increase in open positions.
And it’s not just Ireland feeling the jobs love. This week, streaming giant Netflix announced 400 new roles for Amsterdam.
With all of these jobs now available, it’s important that you know how to succeed in them. (We told you we’d bring you back to advice.)
