The media jobs trumpet is not a barometer of anything other than the manipulation by the gov and their spinners.

The fix is cross platform.


Close thread so? Or just leave open for job losses maybe?


If we can report the ones that are not being reported on both sides then the thread is worthwhile. It seems that many large job losses during the early years of the bust were not being reported according to anecdotal stories I heard or at least buried.

Just look at todays bull about contracts while the HSE in total burns hundreds of millions. It’s interesting how contract law suddenly becomes so very important at times. A case of the lesser of two evils serving as a smokescreen.

Deloitte to create 638 positions across Island of Ireland … -1.1923105

I hate when Big Four jobs announcements are made. Mainly because they are simply replacing recently qualified staff (whose 3/3.5 year contracts have ended and will not be kept on as they don’t want to pay the 50K p.a.) with cheaper graduates on 21-23K p.a.

By my maths, this makes 738 not 638! Poorly explained article. Perhaps they are (correctly) not counting the 100 work placements and internships, which for the most part are unpaid and all of which are temporary.

At most it’s 100 new positions in the Republic. The 200 graduates are replacing the newly qualified, as I eluded to above
