Accounting & FinanceSalary Guide 2018

Banking - thriving, prosperous, booming


We forecast the International Financial Services sector with a foothold of approximately 35,000, is set to increase by 10-15% over the next year, a similar increase to the last 12 months. This can be attributed to Ireland being an attractive base for American, European and Asian Financial Services operations.

On the retail banking side, there continues to be strong demand for candidates with APA or QFA qualifications. We continue to see a big demand for arrears & restructuring candidates with the major growth area being the demand for new business underwriters and credit analysts for the SME market. This is a positive reflection on the current domestic demand for mortgages, motor and lending. Permanent opportunities are also starting to come about again having been very limited in recent years.
