Eishtec reveals plans to hire a further 100 people

11 Mar 2013

Waterford call centre company Eishtec, which in December announced 250 new jobs, is planning to recruit an additional 100 people.

The company is to hold a Jobs Fair at the Theatre Royal in Waterford today and tomorrow.

The company’s co-founders and owners Heather Reynolds, Brian Barry and Colm Tracey, all previously held director-level roles in the telecoms industry in Ireland and overseas.

In December, we reported that Eishtec is to create 250 new jobs at a new custom-built facility in Wexford after the company won a contract with UK mobile operator Everything Everywhere (EE), which is rolling out the UK’s first 4G network.

Eishtec currently employs 400 people at its Waterford site at the Cleaboy Business Park. “Increased levels of business mean we will be increasing our staff by approximately 100 permanent customer contact providers this year and instead of the traditional methods of recruitment we decided that a Jobs Fair would be an innovative way to expand our talent pool and facilitate this growth,” Reynolds explained.

“Being a Waterford company we are delighted to give some good news to our home city in these difficult times. As with our recent expansion in Wexford, we will commence the recruitment immediately and wish to thank Waterford Chamber Skillnet, Outsourcing Skillnet and CCMA Skillnet for all their assistance supporting our recruitment process,” Reynolds added
