On Saturday Jan 29th, Dublin will host an event for Irish people seeking job or education opportunities overseas. ‘Business and Franchising’ opportunities are also available at the event. 

The ‘New Year – New Career’ Jobs Expo is being organised by Other Options and details are available on the website: www.otheroptions.ie . Individuals are advised to come prepared with a résumé.

‘New Year – New Career’ Jobs Expo.
The Burlington Hotel, Dublin
Saturday, January 29th 2011
9am – 6pm (one day only)
Entry fee of €10 applies

Speaking about the event, Deborah O'Leary, Staffing Operations Manager with Manpower Ireland who will be recruiting for their Australian office, said: “45% of Australian employers surveyed by Manpower reported difficulty filling positions due to the lack of suitable talent available in their market. The types of roles available include highly-skilled oil and gas fitters, mining professionals and heavy vehicle mechanics, as well as roles in the ICT, Finance, Engineering, Trades and Nursing sectors….Visa sponsorship will be arranged and salaries for those roles will range from AU$60,000 up to AU$120,000 Australian dollars (about €40,000 up to €90,000?).”

Dave Nerz, President of NPA, a worldwide recruiting network who also be attending said: "We are seeing a return to more normal levels of recruiting activity but it is still very dependent on industries, geographies, and specialty, with the greatest need globally in industries such as Pharmaceuticals/Medical Devices/Biotech, IT, Energy and Clean/Green Technology, Manufacturing and Healthcare.”

In related news, the number of UK graduate vacancies rose in last year’s recruitment season for the first time since the recession started to bite, according to the Association of Graduate Recruiters (AGR), which published the winter edition of its bi-annual survey on Tuesday.

Despite a slow start to the recruitment year 2009/10, leading to initially pessimistic forecasts, employers reported a surge in graduate vacancies in the closing months, resulting in an 8.9% rise in vacancies on the previous recruitment round. This upward trend is predicted to continue with a further increase of 3.8% in 2010/11.

However despite a brighter outlook in terms of vacancies, the median graduate starting salary was fixed at £25,000 for the second year in a row in 2009/2010 and is predicted to remain stagnant for an unprecedented third year.

Many graduate employers will also be holding back other financial incentives for graduates in 2010/11, with only one quarter likely to reward successful candidates with a lump sum payment and approximately two-thirds (67.8%) saying that they do not intend to offer education premiums.

Carl Gilleard, Chief Executive of the AGR, said: “It is heartening to see that after so many months of misery for graduates, the job market is finally picking up. Our members represent a broad and competitive segment of employers within the UK economy and these results signal that the graduate market is overcoming the impact of the recession and anticipating further growth.”

“However, the fact that salaries are predicted to remain the same for a third year and fewer employers are offering financial incentives for graduates, is also evidence that the demand for jobs still greatly outstrips supply and recruiters continue to receive above and beyond the number of applications they require.

“Although it is currently an employers’ market, we would urge recruiters not to become complacent - - particularly as things start to pick up and tuition fee increases take hold. It will be essential for organisations to invest in graduate talent if they want to meet recruitment targets, prevent candidate dropout, meet increasing salary expectations and retain the most talented employees.”

Reflecting on the implications of the Browne Review on university funding, AGR recruiters anticipate that salary expectations will increase due to higher tuition fees and also that the pool of graduates from which they recruit will include fewer people from lower socio-economic backgrounds. On the whole, however, they do not tend to believe that the Browne Review will result in any adverse changes to the quality of degree courses of interest to their organisation and sector.
