EURES Cross Border Partnership Report 2019: Labour Market Movement & Skills Gap on the Island of Ireland

Posted On: 17 Dec 2019



The purpose of this paper is to provide up to date, tangible information on cross border activity in the Ireland – Northern Ireland region.

In line with best practice, information has been gained from the reputable sources that provide such information, mainly – the Central Statistics Office (CSO) in the Republic of Ireland and the Northern Ireland Statistics and Research Agency (NISRA) in Northern Ireland. EURES (EURopean Employment Services) is the European network of employment services in 31 countries and has around 1,000 advisers from public and private employment services.

From the information provided by CSO and NISRA we have produced a report we hope will support jobseekers, workers and employers in the jurisdiction as well as providing focus for our EURES Cross Border Partnership regarding the direction of travel for our partnership and where we can use our resources most effectively in the coming years.

In a wider context and as part of the EURES Cross Border Network, the information we are providing will be useful in a comparative context to other border regions across the European Union. This will assist Cross Border Partnerships to analyse the mobility flows and hopefully provide some solutions to the issues faced by jobseekers, workers and employers in the border regions.
