Current and Future Skills Requirements of Fingal to 2023 Survey


1. Introduction

Development of a Medium-Term Skills Strategy for Fingal

Company Survey

Background to the research and who should complete the survey

Fingal County Council (FCC) is commencing work on a Medium-Term Skills Strategy for the County.  FCC has commissioned RSM to develop the strategy.  The strategy will provide clear evidence on the future skills needs to ensure that Fingal and the Irish economy has the necessary talent pool, properly skilled to meet industry demands.

FCC is now inviting companies in the County to get involved and assist in developing the strategy for the Fingal area by sharing their perspectives on challenges and opportunities they face in relation to current and future skills supply and demand in Fingal up to 2023.

Specifically, we are interested in the views of companies based in the Fingal County Council area.  We want to find out about their current and future skills needs and how these may best be addressed.
