Irish recruitment company Sigmar plans to create 50 jobs at a new “European talent hub” in Tralee, Co Kerry.

The company is seeking candidates from “all backgrounds” regardless of experience and education, to fill the positions.

Sigmar is investing in the development of a “bespoke, world-class learning and development programme designed to equip individuals with all of the skills and knowledge necessary to become successful international recruitment specialists”.

The Sigmar employees in Kerry will be filling roles for clients in IT for European markets with candidates from other jurisdictions.

Sigmar Recruitment chief executive Adrian McGennis said the Kerry hub would be a “key element” of the company’s international growth.

“Ireland has the talent to capitalise on current international recruitment opportunities,” he said. “This investment will kick-start the group’s international growth initially in Germany, then other parts of Europe and the US.

Regionalisation

“Sigmar has been very supportive of regional development and this investment proves our belief in the business case for regionalisation. This European talent hub will be a key element of Sigmar’s stated international growth.

“It’s also an operation where we can develop and test new technologies including robotics and artificial intelligence. We have been working on the processes, technology and markets for some time to accelerate our international expansion.”

Earlier this year, Sigmar announced partnership with Groupe Adéquat of France, with a view to creating one of the top 25 staffing firms in the world. Under the terms of the deal, the French company will take a majority equity stake in the Irish business.
