Dragon Caan backs Irish recruiters
Recruitment firm Darwin Hawkins has launched in Dublin.
Founders Niall O'Kelly and Mark Baker have partnered with James Caan's Recruitment Entrepreneur.
As part of the investment, Recruitment Entrepreneur will provide the company with operational infrastructure, accountancy, payroll and marketing support. It will also provide financial backing for the business to scale up over the next three years.
Mr Caan said he would be mentoring Mr O'Kelly and Mr Baker throughout, "focusing on how to both scale and internationalise the business with particular attention to attracting the right talent for the company".
"This is a great time to invest in Ireland. Post-Brexit we expect to see an economic boom, particularly in the financial services, technology and fintech sectors," he added.
This is Mr Caan's third investment in Ireland in recent months, alongside Hayward Hawk in Belfast and 360 Search in Dublin.
