Coronavirus and Irish Job Postings Through 27th November: Data from Indeed.ie

by

Job postings gap continues to narrow.

This post is updated as of 27th November 2020. We will continue to update these trends regularly as we track how coronavirus impacts the global labour market. 

Job postings on Indeed Ireland continue to recover. The gap to last year’s trend narrowed to -20% as of 27th November, from -23% the previous week. December’s easing of restrictions will provide near-term support, though the possibility of another lockdown in January may temper optimism.

Growth in healthcare and social work   

The strongest performing sectors relative to last year’s trend are medical information, community & social service and nursing. These categories are all running comfortably ahead of where they were at the same time last year. Face-to-face consumer services remain the hardest-hit sectors, with hospitality & tourism, food preparation & service and beauty & wellness job postings well down on last year’s trends. 

Methodology

To measure the trends in total job postings, we calculated the 7-day moving average of the number of job postings on Indeed Ireland. We indexed each day’s 7-day moving average to the start of that year (1 February 2020 = 100 for 2020 data, and so on), or another date if specified on the chart.
