Midlandjobs message is therefore very clear - get your message out about your intention to soon hire again early and often. Leaving it until the month your requirements become urgent is a recipe for disappointment. We urge employers to by all means hope for the best - that you will be receive adequate cv's when you again push the button on your hiring. But you can (and possibly should) still expect the worst - the cv's may still not be there when you need them.
Finally, don't be fooled by the negative jobs headlines. these days It's entirely possible that the job losses in the Tech sector might have little effect on employees actually based in Ireland. Many of those losing out, could in fact be located overseas and might not have even returned after the pandemic. Yet even if there is a cohort of talent bursting out onto the jobs market over the coming months - this new availability of skills could even represent an opportunity for Midlands companies based so close to the Dublin region where some of the tech companies mentioned are located. But they may already have found opportunities by early Spring 2023. So now is the time to start getting the message out that you're company remains very much open for business.
