sigmar recruitment jobs

Sigmar Recruitment announced the creation of 150 new jobs to service its new Centre of Excellence. The announcement was made by the Minister for Jobs, Enterprise and Innovation, Mary Mitchell O’Connor TD.

The jobs were announced as part of the company’s expansion plan to deliver a wider portfolio of services globally and will bolster the position of the company as Ireland’s leading independent recruiter.

 

These new positions will more than double the workforce by the end of 2018.  Sigmar Recruitment is on track to deliver 50 of these new jobs by the end of this year, with another 50 by the end of 2017 and a further 50 by the end of 2018. Sigmar is supported by the Department of Jobs, Enterprise and Innovation through Enterprise Ireland.

 

Making the announcement Minister Mitchell O’Connor says: “Today’s announcement that Sigmar Recruitment, a highly innovative Irish company, is creating 150 new jobs in Dublin, Cork, Galway and Kerry is great news for the country. Through our Regional Action Plan for Jobs, I am committed to ensuring jobs are created in every region in Ireland. These new jobs will contribute greatly to the prosperity of communities across the country. Sigmar is a great example of the type of company Enterprise Ireland is working with. I warmly congratulate Adie and his team and wish them continued success for the future.”

 

The jobs are in recruitment, sales and digital marketing at both experienced and graduate levels with a significant number of positions available in locations outside of the capital to include Cork, Galway and Kerry.

 

The establishment of the Centre of Excellence is largely due to an uplift in demand for talent by US companies who are expanding internationally from Ireland.

 

Sigmar Recruitment’s Chief Commercial Officer, Robert Mac Giolla Phádraig explains:  “With our considerable expertise in supporting FDI companies establish operations in Ireland, we have developed a Total Talent Management solution to support our clients’ next phase of international expansion from Ireland. We have set up a Centre of Excellence to support this international growth in demand.

 

“This investment is a high value play to help some of the fastest growing companies in the world find the best talent in the world from here in Ireland, something we are immensely proud of.”

 

Sigmar Recruitment prides itself on its unrivalled education and development programmes. Successful candidates will be eligible for the company’s own Recruitment MBA, which is run in conjunction with Trinity College Dublin and Notre Dame, the first transatlantic executive programme of its type in the country.

 

According to Sigmar CEO Adie Mc Gennis the net effect of this announcement is far greater than the 150 jobs. He explains: “As recruiters by their very nature have a huge impact on job creation, the end effect of a creation of 150 jobs will have an enormous effect in terms of the actual number of jobs being created in Ireland over the next number of years.”

 

He adds: “Everyone at Sigmar is proud and excited to share our expansion plans. We have experienced very strong growth and this confirms our confidence in the recruitment sector, the Irish economy and most importantly in all of our people to continue Sigmar’s success.

 

“We deal with talent every day, so are fully aware that our growth is based on the positive, professional, progressive culture developed in Sigmar.”

 

Julie Sinnamon, CEO, Enterprise Ireland concludes: “Enterprise Ireland has worked closely with Sigmar Recruitment over the past five years to support its growth and development. The company’s impressive growth since the management and staff buyout in 2009 to becoming one of Ireland’s leading independent recruitment companies is testament to the vision, ambition and entrepreneurial spirit of Adie McGennis and his team. Sigmar’s success in establishing its brand internationally with leading global companies is an excellent example to Irish service businesses seeking export growth. Enterprise Ireland looks forward to continuing to work with Sigmar as they grow further, creating sustainable jobs across a number of regions in Ireland”.
