Recruitment website firm Indeed creating 500 more jobs in Dublin
A recruitment website company is to create 500 jobs in Dublin.
Indeed said it will double its workforce in Ireland over the next two years.
The company has already started recruiting for roles in sales, client services, human resources, business development, marketing, finance, strategy and operations.
The positions will be based at its Dublin headquarters for Europe, the Middle East and Africa (EMEA).
Taoiseach Enda Kenny said growing companies like Indeed can rest assured that Ireland will remain in the EU and the single market.
"Their staggering growth since their establishment in Ireland in 2012 is a fantastic endorsement of our strengthening economy and is a reflection of the benefits of doing business in Ireland," he said.
"Ireland will remain a central and committed member of the EU and the single market and growing dynamic companies like Indeed can rest assured we will work continually to promote the opportunities of the European single market."
Indeed has offices in more than 60 countries.
It opened its Dublin office in March 2012 and already employs 530 people at St Stephen's Green.
Chris Hyams, president of Indeed, said the expansion was a particularly important one for the company.
"Having our EMEA hub in Dublin is the natural choice given the large pool of high-skilled talent both locally and from the rest of Europe," he said.
"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 all over the world."
