Are you aware of your value in today’s job market?

Elaine Dorgan 16.01.2017

In the month of January we make out resolutions and plans for the year ahead, but one key point to look at is your value in today’s market. Are you being paid what you’re worth?

Of course we would all like to earn a bit more and have a few more holidays throughout the year or have a new flashy car but do you really know your value in today’s market?

A few questions that you might ask yourself:

  • Do you have niche skills that are in high demand with companies?
  • Have you extensive years of experience? 
  • Are you recently graduated and looking at what career to move into? 
  • Have you recently been promoted but your salary might not be in line with what you thought it would be? 
  • Do you feel undervalued in your current company? 


If yes to any of the above, then take a look at our recent Salary Guide for 2017.

Morgan McKinley has compiled the 2017 Ireland Salary Guide across all sectors such as Accountancy & Finance, Banking & Financial Services, Multilingual, Legal and IT just to name a few.

With Morgan McKinley being Ireland’s largest professional staffing company, this enables us to report on current skills demands and forecast future talent requirements.

Month-on-month we report on an employment monitor which has enabled us to report on current skills demands and forecast future talent requirements. 

Evidence points to further increases in the Irish labour force in 2017, with the total number of people in employment growing, albeit at a slower pace in the second half of 2016.
2016 saw a strong performance for the Irish economy with GDP growth increasing to 4.2% and the unemployment rate decreasing from 8.5% to 7.3% during the year, the lowest it has been in eight years

Unemployment is at the lowest it has been in eight years and we can see here the increased demand from our clients.

If you are unsure about your value in today’s market, then get in touch with Morgan McKinley and speak with one of our specialist consultants. We recruit candidates for positions at all levels across a range of disciplines and industry sectors. 

If you are working within Sales & Marketing, HR & Recruitment, Office Support, Multilingual or Customer Service, or just looking for a new opportunity then take a look at a list of current opportunities that I have available.
