Stephen Moloney(IBNB& Live Your Dream Education) recently sat down to talk with Oliver an IT Recruitment Consultant – Specialising in Front End Development at Morgan McKinley about the job market in Ireland so he can give us an insight into which sectors have been affected by COVID 19 and which are thriving.
How have job sectors in Ireland have been affected by COVID-19?
Clients put a lot of projects in 2020 on hold and didn’t move forward as there was fear in the market and uncertainty caused by the pandemic.
