October Monthly Round-Up 2021
2021 October Monthly Round-Up
As the country continues to take steps in the right direction towards a return to normality we are looking forward to seeing what the upcoming months have in store with our 2021 October Monthly Round-Up.
Ireland continues its fight against the Covid-19 pandemic as the government has facilitated a further easing of restrictions. The weather is beginning to change and Ireland is heading into the winter months with businesses operating again at full capacity with some industries seeing their doors open for the first time in over 18 months.
As some businesses continue to work from home and others have begun returning to offices, it is business as usual for our consultants here at AA Euro Group.
Here is our 2021 October Monthly Round-Up:
There has been a large increase in job searches for individuals in receipt of the Pandemic Unemployment Payment (PUP) with 36% of those urgently searching for work as the government begins to formulate an ending to the payment.
Consumer confidence remains high for September as we continue to return to a sense of normality with the pandemic. The construction industry has once again seen an increase in activity as other industries begin to stall.
After last month’s return to the office, workers have highlighted their desire to continue work from home measures as 72% of workers would prefer a hybrid working model over a full-time office return with a 10% pay rise.
Increases in material costs coupled with labour shortages in the construction sector have seen commercial construction inflation rise to 8.3%, almost double that of pre-covid figures.
With the country beginning to return to a sense of normality, our Recruitment Resourcer, Sarah Murphy has outlined what advice she would give jobseekers surrounding the current job market and industry trends. An article that will help job seekers gain insights into the job market and what they can expect in the near future.
