Job site Indeed is hiring 300 people at its EMEA HQ in Dublin – more than doubling its workforce there – as it reacts to a 40pc rise in job searches in Ireland in the past 12 months.
Recruiting for sales, client services, business development, marketing, finance and operations roles, Indeed’s plans come on the back of research that shows Dublin one of six leading tech hubs in Europe for tech employment.
The new employees, who will be recruited over the next two years, will work within the company’s EMEA operations, of which Dublin houses the HQ.
The recruitment site opened its first Dublin office in March 2012 and currently has a team of more than 230 employees.
Commitment to Ireland
“Today’s announcement demonstrates Indeed’s long-term commitment to Ireland and our confidence, both in the strengthening Irish economy and in the deep pool of talent that Ireland offers,” said Chris Hyams, president of Indeed.
“When we opened our Irish office in 2012 we had ambitious growth plans for Indeed and Ireland has played an integral role in our international expansion.”
Recent research published by the company shows that Dublin is one of six leading “tech hub” cities in Europe for opportunities to work in technology, with nearly one in every 14 available jobs coming from the sector.
“Indeed is one of the fastest-growing tech companies in Ireland today. Indeed’s presence here in Ireland adds to our reputation as a hub of international tech and multilingual talent,” said Martin Shanahan, CEO of IDA Ireland, which supported the company’s initial move into Ireland.
“The plans to add 300 new jobs at Indeed’s EMEA headquarters show that companies are continuing to find the right talent to facilitate their plans for rapid expansion.”
