Fingal County Council worked with local stakeholders to identify key sectors and potential skill shortages that might develop in Fingal and seek opportunities to address these skills shortages working in partnerships with industry and the education sector. The key sectors identified in Fingal are: Commerce and Trade, Professional Services, Manufacturing and Pharma, Transport and Logistics, Agri Food and Construction.

The Fingal Skills Strategy sets out recommendations to be carried out by both public and private sector partners. As with the entire spectrum of economic activity across the country, Covid 19 has been a disruptor to the implementation of the strategy. However - in 2021, the Skills Strategy Implementation Group convened to review developments in key sectors and drive activities to facilitate skills development and awareness of opportunities to enhance skills and training around the county.
