Job vacancies in Ireland declined by 9% in the third quarter of the year compared with the same period in 2021, reports The Irish Independent citing figures from IrishJobs.ie. When compared to the previous quarter job vacancies fell by 4%. IrishJobs.ie reported that the third quarter of 2022 was the first time in seven quarters that job vacancies in Ireland fell. However, while demand appeared to fade from the post-lockdown surge, it remained notably higher than levels recorded before the pandemic. Job vacancies were a third higher now than they were in the third quarter of 2019 before the pandemic.
As well as this, applications were on the rise on the site. IrishJobs recorded a 20% increase in candidate applications in September of this year compared with the year before. “As we consider these figures, we must acknowledge that Q3 2021 was a particularly buoyant quarter, as the country emerged from a long lockdown with the gradual reopening of hospitality across the country,” said IrishJobs general manager Orla Moran. “This, along with the fact that Q3 generally sees a decline in comparison to the summer months of Q2, might help to take the edge off what might otherwise seem an uncertain outlook for job vacancies across Ireland.”
