National Skills Bulletin 2019

9 December 2019 

The National Skills Bulletin 2019 is the fifteenth in an annual series of reports produced by the Skills and
Labour Market Research Unit (SLMRU) in SOLAS and the third to be produced on behalf of the National
Skills Council (NSC). It presents an overview of the Irish labour market at occupational level.

During 2018, the labour market continued to improve: employment grew with an additional 63,000
persons at work compared to the previous year, and the number of unemployed persons declined by
20,400. In terms of occupations, the greatest increases in employment were observed for those in
professional and skilled trades, with chefs and construction workers in big demand.
