From the rise of mobile gaming to the impact of advanced technologies like artificial intelligence and machine learning, we look at the trends IT workers should watch this year.
Demand for tech talent continues to be very strong with employers competing to attract suitably qualified candidates for key roles. Set out below are five trends contributing to the current demand.
With tech talent in short supply, we find that companies are increasingly willing to look beyond the European Economic Area for candidates. Likewise, on the candidate side of our business, we are receiving enquires from non-EEA tech workers interested in moving to Ireland, drawn in part by Ireland’s reputation as a global hub for the world’s leading tech, pharma and aviation leasing companies as well as an international finance centre.
A recent Devskilller survey of global hiring trends shows the top five countries that Ireland recruits developers from are India, the UK, the US, Romania and South Africa. A trend we are seeing at Eolas Recruitment is that since the UK’s referendum on leaving the EU, there has also been a noticeable increase in enquiries from UK-based IT workers considering relocating to Ireland.
Previously on this blog, we discussed what IT professionals need to know about employment permits when moving to Ireland and more recently we provided an update on the March 2019 changes to the Critical Skills Employment Permit rules.
