Recruitment firm Sigmar has created 60 jobs with the establishment of its new European Talent Hub in Tralee.

Twenty of the available 60 positions are already filled at the Kerry hub, and a recruitment drive is ongoing to fill the remaining IT positions.

Employees at the site, which officially launches next week, will fill roles in IT for international markets with candidates from other countries.

Sigmar said that applicants do not require a third level education and it has invested in on-site training programme for hired staff.

Earlier this year, Sigmar announced a strategic partnership with French staffing giant Groupe Adéquat.

CEO Adrian McGennis, Sigmar CEO that that this is the "most significant advancement in recruitment that I have seen in my 25 years in the industry".

"A leading Irish company in partnership with a €1bn French company, develop process and technology that creates the need to recruit 60 people in Kerry to place IT talent from all parts of Europe into German market."

Sigmar's new European Recruitment Model (ERM) sees recruitment operations becoming more mobile and remote, shifting from cities to more rural environments.

Tralee-man Shaun O’Shea, Head of European Recruitment at Sigmar, leads the new project.

"One of our deciding factors was the research into the area which highlighted the huge talent pool of ambitious individuals who we believe we can nurture with our experience and skills to help build new exciting career paths," he said.
