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 When compared to the previous quarter job vacancies fell by 4%. 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.”
