2021 Salary Guide

Sign up to exclusively receive our 2021 salary and market research guide before it will be officially released in January 2021. Our 2021 salary guide has been developed for business leaders and professionals in Ireland to assist in making knowledgeable and clear decisions in relation to hiring, attracting and retaining top talent.  We looked beyond the CSO average salary inflation, which applies to most roles in Ireland, and focused on the roles we specialise in.

2020 has caused significant disruptions in operations and personnel management, COVID-19 being the dominant bringer of change. In 2021 we will see a continuation of this new normal as we adapt to new ways of working, which may include remote working for many industries – continuing to affect organisational hiring processes.

The coronavirus pandemic has tipped us into another global recession which will present its own challenges for the economy, along with the impact of the Brexit fallout, but it’s not all bad news – market growth is expected in industries like manufacturing, IT, engineering and life sciences, while other regions are set to experience growth as we see a move away from a centralisation of Dublin.

Recruitment will play an important role in the year ahead, as demands for remote workers are set to increase, along with demand for temporary staffing solutions. We are once again in an employer-led market, and a focus on retaining quality staff, rather than obtaining staff in general, is greater than it has been in recent years. Skills shortages will be observed in sectors that have experienced growth.

Wellbeing is a motivational factor that has made its way to the forefront of employees’ minds for 2021, fulfilled by a greater sense of work-life balance, flexible working opportunities, location, traffic and costs of living.
