IT recruitment specialists see increased demand

18 Jun 2013

The Irish branch of GCS Recruitment Specialists has moved offices in Dublin after growing its staff to satisfy demand for permanent and contract staff in the technology and financial services sectors.

“Despite the ongoing recession, we’ve noticed a marked increase in technology vacancies,” said GCS Ireland manager Tim Dunne. “More and more Irish businesses are beginning to appreciate the need to attract the best technology professionals to the country.”

Dunne went on to say that Ireland could be a major global player within IT, especially within cloud computing, where analysts suggest Ireland could enjoy a 20pc market share.

“Through the efforts of forward-thinking leaders, the engagement of the best and brightest within the technology sector, and solid investment of time and money, our IT industry could well be the key to Ireland’s recovery,” Dunne added.

“Recruitment businesses can be described as barometers for the economy,” commented GCS founder Chris Bartlett. “GCS cannot expand unless our clients are hiring. After a period of business uncertainty in Ireland, it appears companies are feeling confident enough about the future of the Irish technology marketplace to invest time and money into ensuring that they have the best permanent and interim talent available.”
