New Job

The highest starting salaries in Ireland have been revealed and Dublin is far below the national average, according to a new survey.

Conducted by gradireland, the ‘Graduate Salary & Graduate Recruitment Trends Survey 2016’ revealed that the national average for starting salaries is currently €28,461, while the average starting salary in the capital is €24,000.

These figures may come as a surprise to many, as 54.6% of the nation's graduate jobs are located in Dublin, while the entire province of Munster has less than 15%.

Dublin appears to have the lowest salaries on average in the country, but the rest of Leinster has the highest with an average salary of €29,000.

The industries with the highest starting salaries are law (€38,500), management consulting (€31,000), and IT/telecoms (€30,000).

On the other hand, the industries with the lowest starting salaries are retail and sales (€24,000), accountancy and financial management (€20,000), and marketing/advertising/media (€20,000). 

Take a look at the list of national starting salaries below.
