The Suday Business Post has reported that there was a 57 per cent increase in the number of professional job opportunities in January 2014 compared with December 2013.
There was an increase of 10 per cent in professional job vacancies in the first month of this year compared to January 2013, according to a new study.
10,666 professional jobs were available in January compared to 9,730 in the same month last year, according to the Morgan McKinley Irish Employment Monitor. It also registered a 57 per cent increase in the number of professional job opportunities in January 2014 compared with December 2013, although December is typically a quieter month for job activity and candidate availability, it said.
The number of professionals seeking new job opportunities increased by 49 per cent from 5,658 in December 2013 to 8,430 in January 2013, it said. The number of job seekers has declined by 13 per cent from 9,735 in January 2013 to 8,430 for January 2014. The month on month upsurge in professionals seeking new job opportunities is a result of the seasonal differences in the market between December and January, it said.
