A new analysis of Ireland’s talent pool has found that Galway’s technology workforce continues to go from strength to strength – as employees continue to develop more skills in emerging technologies such as artificial intelligence, cloud computing, cybersecurity, data analytics, data ethics and sustainability.

Accenture’s Ireland Talent Tracker analyzes the latest trends in the Irish technology market and their findings confirm Galway as one of Ireland’s fastest growing technology hubs, with over 5,000 employees who have in-demand skills sought by employers in Ireland.

Cloud computing, data analytics and cybersecurity were identified by the report as skills particularly sought after by Galway-based employees. The research revealed that sustainability skills were the most in demand by employers, accounting for 175 out of 570 available technology roles.

In Galway’s Metropolitan Area, sustainability skills accounted for 31% of all technology jobs advertised on the platform, followed by data analytics (15%) and cyber security (12%). Other emerging technology skills such as robotics, augmented reality and data ethics and accountability are currently in 7% of jobs combined for the Galway region.

In its previous report, published in March, Accenture identified eight main technology hubs across Ireland – Dublin, Cork, Galway, Kildare, Limerick, Waterford, Westmeath and Sligo.

The latest report finds that there has been a change in several trends across these technology hubs over the past six months:

Remote work technology jobs doubled in advertising, from 12% in March 2022 to 25% in August 2022.

72% of jobs advertised by businesses across Ireland are currently available in the eight major hubs studied: Dublin, Cork, Galway, Kildare, Limerick, Waterford, Westmeath and Sligo – This represents a drop of 24 % of March. In March, this figure stood at 96%, demonstrating the lesser impact of the pandemic on office and general remote work roles.

The number of advertised technology jobs fell by 27% across the eight major hubs studied, but there was a significant increase (104%) in remote jobs across Ireland.

“The decline in the available roles listed could mean that businesses call back on major innovation projects. The second half of this year will be one of uncertainty for the market due to inflation and the rising cost of living and energy prices, and Business practices appear to have reflected this, however, we expect this number to decline next year as companies look to innovate and grow through new technology initiatives.

“There is now a huge opportunity for businesses that have been proactive against the backdrop of uncertainty. Those that have looked for new opportunities and embrace innovation are set to benefit in the long term,” he concluded.
