Jobs search service Indeed is to double its workforce in Dublin to 200 people in the next 12 months. Every month, 100m job-seekers apply for jobs via Indeed on their smartphones, tablets and desktop computers.
The company has already started recruiting for sales, marketing, finance, operations, client services, and business development roles.
Indeed has sites in more than 50 countries and in 28 languages.
Unlike most job sites which only show paid listings, Indeed brings together the most job listings from employer career sites, staffing agencies, job boards, and newspaper career pages.
Minister for Jobs, Enterprise and Innovation Richard Bruton, TD, welcomed news of the new jobs.
“I know from meeting (Indeed) with IDA in the USA that this is a highly innovative company and today’s announcement is a major boost for Ireland. We in Government are determined to continue building on this, to attract further investments and create the jobs we need,” Bruton said.
Another jewel in the crown
Indeed is one of the jewels in the crown of the Irish-based ‘born on the internet’ companies, said IDA Ireland CEO Barry O’Leary.
“The Indeed decision to expand here is very welcome news for the Irish economy and further endorses the country’s reputation as a location to service the whole European, Middle Eastern and African regions. Employment-intensive services is a key strategic focus in IDA’s Horizon 2020 strategy,” said O’Leary.
Every month, more than 100m job-seekers find and apply to jobs on Indeed through a tablet, smartphone or desktop computer, with a single search. Indeed aims to make it easy for job-seekers to create job alerts which notify them as soon as new jobs are posted that meet their criteria.
Indeed opened its first Dublin office in March 2012 and in the last 18 months has hired more than 100 employees. Due to its rapid growth, Indeed has already expanded into a larger premises in the Bloodstone building on Dublin’s Sir John Rogerson Quay.
“Over the past 18 months, Dublin has proven itself as the ideal location for a high-growth technology company like Indeed,” said David Rudlick, vice-president (international) of Indeed.
“Our Dublin HQ has given us an opportunity to tap into an incredible source of tech-savvy talent, both locally, from the rest of Europe and further afield.
“Our continued growth stems from of our unwavering commitment to providing the best job search experience to the job-seeker and providing employers with a place to find the right candidates. In Ireland, for example, we index jobs from over 3,000 sources and we added over 10,000 new Irish jobs to the site in the last seven days on Indeed.com,” Rudlick said.
