Indeed to double Irish workforce with 500 jobs
Online recruitment firm Indeed is to double its Irish workforce with 500 new jobs in its Dublin-based headquarters.
The company has already started recruiting for the jobs in the areas of sales, client services, HR, business development, marketing and finance.
The positions will be filled over the next two years. Indeed opened its St Stephen's Green office in March 2012 and it employs a team of 530 people there.
Some of the perks for new employees include paid time off without a cap, endless snacks, weekly happy hours and healthcare for employees and families.
Indeed president Chris Hyams said the announcement was a particularly important one for the firm.
"Deciding where to recruit and hire the right people ultimately helps us fulfil Indeed's mission - to help people get jobs," he said. "Having our EMEA [Europe, Middle East and Africa] hub in Dublin is the natural choice given the large pool of high-skilled talent both locally and from the rest of Europe.
"We now have 530 employees, representing 19 nationalities in our Dublin office. We look forward to growing our presence here in Dublin and continuing to work every day to help even more people get jobs."
Taoiseach Enda Kenny said Indeed's "staggering growth" was an endorsement of our strengthening economy.
