Market Update for the Financial Services Industry in Dublin

In H1 2021, particularly in the latter stages of Q1 into Q2, the financial services industry experienced a strong rebound and increase in market activity, with a positive sentiment present across most sectors. Interestingly, there has been a shift in market conditions with a transition away from it being an employer’s market for the first time since the onset of Covid-19 and this has resulted in a shortage of talent for critical to hire functions. To attract and retain talent and remain competitive in the market, employers will need to address their flexible working policies, possibly look at hiring professionals located overseas or even explore interim management opportunities to manage change or transformation processes within the business over the coming months and even years.

Our 2021 “Financial Services H1 Update” provides valuable insights and commentary for key areas of the market from our specialist consultants including:

an overview of the financial services industry in H1 in Dublin; and
an analysis of the front office, risk, compliance and accounting markets in Dublin incorporating demand for professionals in H1, predictions for H2, advice for employers and more.
At Coopman, we believe in providing succinct, informative and targeted market updates designed to add value to an organisation and its business leaders. This update is simply a snapshot of the Dublin market in H1 2021. If you would like a bespoke full Market Intelligence Report for your company’s benchmarking or hiring needs, contact us directly.
