What are Career Sectors?
Career sectors contain a collection of occupations that have something in common, for example, the type of work they do or their role in the economy. Very often people are attracted to the products or services provided by a particular sector, and seek to find employment close to the essence of that area.
We provide information on over 30 sectors that make up the Irish Labour market. These have been divided into 6 main categories to make it easy to explore.You can return to this screen as often as you like to make different selections
Where possible we bring you the most up-to-date information directly from the experts that oversee the different sectors. These organisations provide detailed information from which career seekers can make their most informed choices.
