The IT sector in Ireland has always been healthy even in the downturn but lately it has surpassed even industry experts’ expectations with its astonishing growth. IT also offers so many opportunities not only for IT professionals but also supporting staff particularly in sales.
A few vital statistics about the IT sector shows just how vibrant this industry is:
- The IT sector accounts for more than €50 billion worth of exports from Ireland every year.
- As the 2nd largest exporter of IT services in the world, Ireland currently hosts 8 of the top 10 global IT organisations.
- The IT industry’s long-established operations have now been joined by newer firms at the forefront of the internet and social media revolution as well as the games industry.
- Ireland as the European data centre is poised to become a global centre of excellence for Cloud technologies within the coming years.
- The recent announcement that 500 Jobs are targeted at Ireland’s first rural Digital Hub in Co. Cork shows that this growth is not just limited to Dublin. The 10,000 square foot centre is the first of its kind in a non-urban area on the island with the aim of supporting Information Technology start-ups.
Consequently Business Development positions within the IT sector across Ireland are growing in scale!
For both contract and permanent roles, from entry level right up to management levels all across Ireland, Business Development professionals in the IT sector are in great demand.
For more junior IT Business Development roles, employers generally look for a 3rd level degree, however for more senior roles, employers look for a proven track record, achieving targets as well as a network of contacts.
