EURES Cross Border Partnership Report 2020: Labour Market Movement & Skills Gap on the Island of Ireland

Posted On: 17 Dec 2020



The purpose of this paper, which is the second of its kind, is to provide updated, tangible
information on cross border activity in the Ireland – Northern Ireland region and build upon
2019’s EURES Ireland/Northern Ireland Cross-Border Partnership report “Cross Border Labour
Market Movement and Skills Gaps on the Island of Ireland”.

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 a focus for
the EURES Cross Border Partnership regarding our 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.
