Recruitment agency Sigmar will recruit an additional 50 extra staff this year, in what it calls a sign of economic growth for the country, according to the Independent Ireland.
Adrian McGennis, chief executive of Sigmar, said: “We need at least 50 people for our own internal needs, mostly recruiters. There’s an exponential effect to growing numbers of recruiters – it means more recruitment in general, a sign of economic growth.”
Irish-owned Sigmar has offices in Dublin, Cork, Galway, Singapore and Poland and was bought out by its management in 2009 after parent holding company Newcourt went into receivership.
“2009 was our low point – the market was tough – but we’ve seen a positive steady increase since then and have now doubled in size since the management buyout” said Mr McGennis. “Demand is as high as it’s ever been.”
The company is grouped into specialisations, including accounting, multi-lingual, banking and sales and marketing recruitment units. Filling IT roles is its busiest operation.
