Abstract

Focusing on Millennials as an important component of the current workforce in Ireland, this research provides an in-depth study of what attracts Millennials to roles and to organisations within the Irish Financial Services sector.

This study also presents those techniques used by organisations in Ireland to attract Millennials. Ultimately this study addresses an important sectoral need for Millennials within the Irish Financial Services industry and provides recommendations to organisations on how to improve current Talent Attraction practices.

Using a qualitative approach semi-structured interviews with professionals working in the Financial Services Sector in Ireland have been undertaken. This study includes both Millennials and recruiters in order to gain a holistic and comprehensive understanding of the issues.

Using Thematic Analysis, key themes such as career progression, work-life balance and employer reputation emerged as pertinent concerns for the Millennial generation in terms of attraction within Irish Financial Sector. This study has added an important contribution to the existing body of knowledge concerning Talent Attraction practices within the Irish Financial Services sector within the Irish labour market.

The implications of these findings are also important from a practical perspective. While this study was conducted in an Irish context, the findings and recommendations are applicable beyond the Irish labour market.
