Sigmar recently announced the creation of 50 jobs in Co. Kerry. The positions are for international recruiters to work in the company’s European Talent Hub, which has just opened in Tralee.
The first of its kind in Ireland, the European Talent Hub will harness international talent for other international markets from its base in Tralee. The Sigmar employees in Kerry will be filling roles in IT for European markets with candidates from other countries.
Sigmar CEO Adrian McGennis said Ireland has “the talent to capitalise on current international recruitment opportunities”. He added: “This investment will kick-start the group’s international growth initially in Germany, then other parts of Europe and the US. “Sigmar has been very supportive of regional development and this investment proves our belief in the business case for regionalisation.”
Earlier this year, Sigmar announced a strategic partnership with French staffing giant Groupe Adéquat. The partnership deal is structured through a staged equity investment over a five-year period that will see Groupe Adéquat take majority interest.
