The recent survey by jobs site IrishJobs.ie has revealed that almost 20% more jobs have been advertised over the past year, compared to the previous year.
There has been a particularly sharp increase in administrative roles, in particular there is a demand for Medical Secretaries.
The problem most recruiters and employers have found, however, is that the people applying for the jobs don’t have the right skills or qualifications for the positions.
Pitman Training Swords offer a range of courses that can improve your skills and knowledge, as well as boost your chances of getting employed by adding a recognised qualification to your CV.
Gaining new skills not only impacts on your employability right now, it also opens doors for you longer term. There are more opportunities for promotion and progression, in addition to making you eligible for higher pay grades and salary increases. In the medical administration area for example, understanding of medical terminology, typing skills and admin training can impact on salary over time by as much as 20%.
