Office Support

Sector Overview

As the EU’s fastest-growing economy there is a continued demand for multi-skilled Office Administrators, Customer Service personnel with languages to work with Ireland’s ever-growing list of start-ups, SMEs and well-established multinationals.

2019 saw a demand in permanent positions from a candidate perspective, however, contract and temporary roles are still seen as the preferred method of recruitment by employers in this sector. As competition for talent intensifies, candidates need to stand out from the crowd by seeking opportunities to upskill or perhaps undertake relevant courses such as GDPR, Compliance, Languages, Advanced Excel etc.

As with all sectors last year, the uncertainty of Brexit did bring some initial hesitancy from employers to hire office and support staff but we are confident that this will settle down in 2020.
