Online job site Indeed has announced plans to hire 600 more staff in Dublin.

The company already employs 1,000 people in the capital.

The new roles will be created as the recruitment firm expands into its newly opened Capital Dock offices in the Docklands.

It opened its first Dublin office in 2012. It serves as the headquarters of the company’s Europe, the Middle East and Africa (EMEA) operations.

Recruitment has already begun for the new positions in marketing, finance, strategy, operations, sales, client services, HR and business development.

Indeed chief executive Chris Hyams said Indeed exists to help people get jobs, and as its business grows, it needs more people.

“I am delighted to be announcing 600 new roles in Dublin, a city that Indeed arrived in only seven years ago with just three staff,” he said.

“As the Irish economy has grown, Indeed has had the opportunity to grow a strong EMEA HQ here with an abundance of talented staff.”

The company’s decision represents a real vote of confidence in Ireland as a place to do business Business Minister Heather Humphreys

The company also announced a new partnership with the Irish Olympic team.

Business Minister Heather Humphreys said it was “very positive” that a leading international technology firm like Indeed had made the decision to significantly expand its workforce in Ireland.

“The company’s decision represents a real vote of confidence in Ireland as a place to do business and shows that the country remains highly attractive to overseas investors,” she said.

IDA Ireland chief executive Martin Shanahan said Ireland had proved to be a superb location for the company over the past seven years as it expanded its footprint into the EMEA market.

“Indeed is now a highly significant employer in Dublin and is firmly embedded in its business ecosystem,” he said.

“I am delighted to welcome Indeed’s plans to further invest in its impressive new EMEA HQ in the heart of Dublin’s Silicon Docks by adding another 600 roles.

“Indeed’s drive and ambition has resulted in it being the world’s largest job site and Ireland plays a very important role in the ongoing success of the company.”
