Why choose a career in ICT/FinTech ?

The sector is extremely broad and expanding all the time. Ireland is the second largest exporter of computer and IT services in the world and currently the European Headquarters for many of the world’s largest technolgy companies.


Many of the jobs in these sectors are in Software Development, Data Science/Analytics and Technical Support. Cloud Computing, Cybersecurity, Blockchain, Artificial Intelligence (AI), Robotic Processing Automation (RPA) and the Internet of Things (IoT) are other areas that are expected to experience strong growth in the next five years. Despite fears of new disruptive technologies/automation threatening certain roles, the need for skilled employees to use advanced technologies will become more apparent than ever.

ICT now permeates almost all sectors of the economy. Almost 50% of those employed in ICT occupations in Ireland are employed outside of the sector. It has been reported that almost 40% of ‘difficult to fill’ roles across all sectors in Ireland in recent years were in the area of ICT.

Many financial services organisations are looking at technology to embrace innovation and provide better customer experience. The converging financial and technology sectors or “FinTech” will continue to provide significant opportunities to Ireland. The FinTech sector is a Government priority, as evident from its strategy for developing Ireland’s Financial Services Sector, IFS 2025. Ireland is renowned as a world-leading centre for the FinTech industry and in particular the new disruptive technologies such as Blockchain.
