Insights to the Future of Work in the Financial Services Sector

October 24, 2022

The financial services sector in Ireland is a powerhouse for growth, underpinning and enabling all sectors of Ireland’s economy.  The sector contributes almost a one quarter of Ireland’s total 2019 corporate tax income. Ireland services over €5.2 trillion worth of assets under administration.  11 of the top 15 insurance companies have a presence in Ireland, 17 of the top 20 global banks are based here and 14 of the top 15 global aircraft lessors operate from Ireland. 

There are now more than 9,000 financial services companies employing over 105,000 people operating throughout Ireland in a diverse range of industries - banking, insurance, fund administration, investment management, corporate treasury, international financial services, aircraft leasing, securitisation and fintech. 

During the seminar we will hear from Louise Kelly, Members Services Executive, Financial Services Ireland (IFS) and Donna Noonan, IFS Skillnet Network Manager, who will give an overview of the current state of the industry in Ireland today with a focus on the job roles in high demand by employers, followed by a panel discussion with leading industry experts.
