Recent data from Indeed has listed Engineering and Construction as the  Hardest-to-Fill Jobs.


The demand for skilled professionals in various engineering disciplines far surpasses the available talent pool. From instrumentation engineers to resident engineers and design engineers, the struggle to find qualified candidates is evident. Instrumentation engineers, in particular, claim the top spot, with nearly 63% of advertised roles remaining unfilled for over 60 days.


The shortage of construction workers in Ireland has been well-documented, contributing to the difficulty in filling roles such as mechanical and electrical project managers, civil supervisors, and technicians. Even ecologists, tasked with assessing the environmental impact of construction projects, find themselves in the mix of hard-to-fill positions.
