ALMOST one quarter of people in Limerick believe that artificial intelligence may pose a threat to their job security.

That’s according to a survey conducted by FRS Recruitment, who found that 22 per cent (one in five) of Limerick people have expressed concerns that AI may impact or replace their jobs in the future.

This is slightly below the national average of 26 per cent.

The same survey found that as much as 60 per cent of employers are finding the ongoing inflation crisis as a concern in recruitment efforts.

However, according to FRS, AI “has the potential to make our jobs more enjoyable.”

“By automating repetitive and mundane tasks, employees can focus on intellectually stimulating work that aligns with their skills and passions,” they said.

in 1980, FRS Recruitment started out as an agricultural co-operative and has since grown to highly specialised co-operative recruitment agency.
