Regional Labour Markets Bulletin 2016 published by the EGFSN

Date: 13 October 2016 

The Regional Labour Markets Bulletin 2016 provides an overview of the Irish labour market at regional level.

It is the fifth in a series of reports aimed at providing an analysis of the key labour market indicators for each of Ireland’s eight administrative regions: Border, Dublin, Mid-East, Midland, Mid-West, South-East, South-West, and West.

The report compiles relevant information including employment composition, employment permits to non-EEA nationals, job announcements, the job vacancies advertised through the public employment services, employment projections, and utilises the pioneering work on translating the analysis of labour market transitions to provide indications for regional skills requirements in the short term. It also presents the composition of unemployment, the skill profile of job ready job seekers, as well as information on regional skills supply from education and training.

The Report provides a wealth of labour market intelligence statistics and outlines the regional enterprise landscape. As such, the report has already become an important input to the Regional Action Plan for Jobs and a key input to the Regional Skills For a.

The Regional Labour Markets Bulletin provides information of relevance for evidence based policy making in the areas of education and training provision, career guidance, as well as relevant labour market activation initiatives and associated services for job seekers at regional level.
