With the CAO deadline tomorrow, Leaving Cert students will be busy considering their options for third-level study—and their future career.
Ahead of this, jobs platform IrishJobs.ie has revealed the top five sectors with the most vacancies for graduate-level roles.
Unsurprisingly, leading the way are vacancies in banking, financial, and insurance sectors, which top the list.
Staying on the financial theme, the accountancy and finance sector had the second most vacancies for graduates through out 2017 on IrishJobs.ie, according to research from the platform.
The financial sectors were followed by the IT sector, in third.
In a sign that the building and construction industry is returning to boom times, completing the list of top five sectors with the most vacancies for graduate-level roles were engineering and utilities in fourth, while the construction, architecture, and property sector completed the top five.
Commenting on the data, Orla Moran, General Manager at IrishJobs.ie, said the availability of graduate roles in these sectors “reflected the old and new strengths of Ireland’s economy.”
“Ireland is increasingly regarded as a European hub for financial services. We are a world leader in fund administration and aircraft leasing, and a growing insurance and fintech player,” Ms Moran said.
Ms Moran went on to highlight Brexit, the tech industry, and the construction sector as providing increasing employment opportunities in Ireland.
