Employers show signs of increased optimism at the end of disastrous year

IrishJobs.ie GM Orla Moran

Galway’s jobs market showed tentative signs of recovery over the final quarter of 2020 – despite the renewed impact of Covid-19 on the workplace.

But the last twelve months still proved devastating on the local front, according to the latest Jobs Index, published by IrishJobs.ie.

Galway recorded a three per cent decrease in quarterly job vacancies in the final three months of the year over the previous quarter – and overall vacancies in Galway were down 13% year-on-year.

Nationally, job vacancies grew by five per cent over that final quarter, but they remain 23% below pre-Covid levels; the biggest trend however was in remote work vacancies, which experienced notable growth, increasing by 50% quarter-on-quarter.

And, in contrast to the March–May lockdown, when economic activity ground to a halt, the employment market was more resilient in the final quarter of the year as businesses showed signs of adapting to the new Covid reality.

IrishJobs.ie GM Orla Moran said the figures showed ‘the sheer resilience of Irish businesses who have adapted and adjusted quickly to the new Covid reality’.

State aiming to make remote work a reality

Minister Hildegarde Naughton

Galway is expected to benefit from ‘significant investment’ in the development of remote working hubs later this year – as part of the Government’s new National Remote Working Strategy.

Legislation will be introduced by the end of September entitling employees to request remote working arrangements. And while there will be no automatic entitlement, employers will be required to explain why such arrangements are impossible.

If an employee is unhappy with the explanation, they can take a case to the Workplace Relations Commission for adjudication on the matter.

A total of €5 million has been allocated under Budget 2021 for the development of a national hubs network, while the Western Development Commission (WDC) is currently working on the development of 100 hubs in the Atlantic Economic Corridor region, which includes Galway.

Minister Hildegarde Naughton said that the strategy had the potential to transform local economies and the quality of life of thousands of employees in the west.

“The Covid-19 pandemic accelerated exponentially the move towards remote working, and we have responded to that trend by investing in broadband infrastructure and hubs in recent months,” explained the Galway West TD.
