INDEED, THE JOB site, is creating 600 new jobs in Dublin over the next five years.
The announcement was made by Indeed chief executive Chris Hyams at the company’s newly opened office at Capital Dock in Dublin’s docklands this morning.
The number of people employed by Indeed’s Irish arm, which operates as its EMEA headquarters, will increase from 1,000 to 1,600 in the coming years. Recruitment has already began for roles, across marketing, finance, strategy, operations, sales, client services, HR, and business development.
“Dublin is really the star here,” Hyams said as he explained the company was attracted to the talent the city has to offer.
“When Indeed first came to Dublin, we had globally around 350 employees, so our Dublin office is now almost three times that size,” Hyams stated.
The company opened an office in a shared space in the docklands in 2012, ”with three employees and a plant” according to Hyams, who said it was “very exciting to be back in the docklands”.
Since then, it has occupied two other offices, including its office in St Stephen’s Green which will continue to be staffed alongside Capital Dock.
The job site, which employs 9,000 globally, also announced its partnership with the Irish Olympic team and Team Ireland ambassadors two-time Olympic Pentathlete Natalya Coyle and first time Olympic hopeful, gymnast Rhys McClenaghan were present.
