7 May 2021

Catch up on some of the job opportunities we highlighted this week across Cork, Dublin, Dundalk, Galway, Shannon and more.

The first week of May brought a number of exciting job opportunities to light across Ireland. Catch up on the announcements we covered on Siliconrepublic.com.

High-growth companies across the country

A big announcement came from IDA Ireland, highlighting roles that are set to open up at eight high-growth companies in Shannon, Galway, Dundalk, Cork and Dublin.

These companies hail from the US and around Europe and their specialities range from automotive data management and blockchain to risk management and IT consulting. In total, the eight companies are expected to create 185 new jobs across Ireland.

Simply NUC in Louth

Simply NUC, a US company that provides systems for mini PCs, announced its plans to create 30 new jobs in Dunleer, Co Louth, over the next two years.

Dunleer will act as Simply NUC’s European headquarters from which the company will lead further expansion across the continent.

Lucky Beard in Dublin

Also expanding on the east coast is Lucky Beard, a South African design and digital advisory agency with an Irish team of 18 people. Lucky Beard will add 10 new roles to its European headquarters in Dublin, alongside an investment of more than €1m.

Antylia Scientific in Westmeath

For those on the lookout for opportunities in biotech, another US company, Antylia Scientific, could soon be hiring.

The biotech is set to establish a new facility in Co Westmeath, creating 60 new jobs across logistics, supply chain, manufacturing and medical device engineering.

Etsy for remote workers

Online marketplace Etsy said it plans to open up dozens of new jobs in product and engineering in Ireland this year.

The company already has a Dublin office with 100 employees, but it has made many of its roles available to remote candidates. Etsy said that recruitment is to begin immediately.

Return to work with Citi

If you’re coming back to work after a career break, you could consider applying for Citi’s returnship programme. It offers tailored learning and development to help returners re-adjust to the workplace, working towards the ultimate goal of a permanent position at the company.

We spoke to Citi’s Sinead Henshaw this week to learn more about it.
