Market trends

2020 has challenged us all as no one could ever have imagined. We have seen the country go through two lockdowns, with unemployment soaring and whole sectors at a standstill. 

We have also seen some major socio-economic shifts as a result of the pandemic, like how people work with so many now working from their homes. Fortunately, the IT sector has remained buoyant throughout. We saw this resilience in the IT sector in Ireland back in 2008-2009 also, during the last major economic downturn. 

The salary trends in the market did experience a slight movement but nothing major. For a while, the market did shift from being a candidate-driven market to an employer-driven one.  

The talent was quickly found and hired into those companies who were benefiting from the opportunities that the pandemic presented.

Through many conversations with companies around Ireland, we have noticed that strong plans are being put in place to conduct recruitment drives throughout 2021, in the IT sector.


What does this tech salary guide cover?
