Ireland’s allure as a post-Brexit base for global financial firms has driven wages for some roles considerably higher, with some positions offering 15 per cent more than a year ago.
Risk and compliance staff are particularly sought after, five of Dublin’s leading recruitment consultants said. Expertise in data science and newer technologies such as payment platforms is also in demand.
