The National Skills Bulletin 2018 is the fourteenth in an annual series of reports produced by the Skills and Labour Market Research Unit (SLMRU) in SOLAS and the second to be produced on behalf of the National Skills Council (NSC). It presents an overview of  the Irish labour market at an occupational level.

The Bulletin aims to assist policy formulation in the areas of employment, education/training, immigration (particularly the sourcing of skills which are in short supply in the Irish and EU labour market from the EEA); it also aims to inform career guidance advisors, students and other individuals making career and educational choices.
