Businesses are hiring, with many vacancies available in the apparel sector, a survey of jobseekers has found.
In 2016, the number of vacancies in the clothing industry reached 9.7 million, a rise of 17 per cent on the previous year.
However, a total of 3.2 million people applied for a job in the garment industry in Ireland in 2016, according to the Jobstwear survey.
The survey found that a high proportion of the vacancies are in the textile, construction and retail sectors.
However there are also a number of small companies which are being advertised in the fashion industry, the report said.
Jobseekers from the survey were asked which job type they would like to apply for and which company they would be interested in working for.
There are also vacancies available at some of the largest retailers in Ireland, including P&G, Marks & Spencer, L&G and Asda.
The study also found that in the past, the most sought-after roles are in retail and hospitality.
However jobs are also being advertised at the most marginal, fast food, convenience store, foodservice and retail.
