Irish Salaries Holding Up Well

Irish Salaries Holding Up Well

Irish salary levels have held up well despite challenging market conditions during 2008 according to Premier Groups 2009 Salary Guide. Market conditions have challenged every business in 2008 but we have seen salary levels holding up well in spite of this, commented Brian Murphy, Managing Director Ireland, Premier Group.
Its well documented that the construction, and finance industries have experienced considerable challenges in 2008. However there are also a number of industries that are displaying strong resilience the pharmaceutical, medical device, technology and food sectors, in particular, are holding steady. Another feature of 2008 was a swing in demand for recruitment services towards the multinational sector.
Mr Murphy added, Much of the heat has been taken out of salary demands, and many candidates are taking a more reasoned approach towards their career moves. Candidates now need to adopt an innovative approach to their career management and increase their flexibility as well as gain relevant qualifications coupled with solid experience.
Premier Groups Irish operations have had a successful year despite many changes in the Irish economy. Murphy also pointed to new challenges facing the recruitment sector. With the tightening of the economy, candidates are becoming understandably more cautious about changing jobs and this makes the task of matching the perfect candidate with the perfect role probably more difficult than ever, he said.
But this is a challenge that excites us as we look forward to 2009. We will continue to invest heavily in our people, our technology, our marketing and our overall service offering, so as to guarantee success for clients and candidates.
