Good news Indeed on jobs front

World’s biggest jobs site to announce new Dublin roles in September

 

There is good news Indeed coming on the jobs front. I hear Rony Kahan, founder and chief executive of Indeed.com, the world’s biggest jobs site, will be in town in September to announce a raft of new roles at its European headquarters in Dublin’s docklands.

When IDA Ireland and the company announced its arrival last March, Dublin was slated for about 50 jobs in sales and administration. There are already almost 90 staff squeezed into its premises, next door to Facebook on Sir John Rogerson’s Quay.

My snout was unable to say how many new jobs are on the way, but the need for more room has prompted Indeed to move home. It is apparently planning to transfer down the street to the Bloodstone Building, developed by Sean Dunne in the same white chequered pattern as the adjacent Marker hotel.

Indeed overtook Monster about a year ago as the world’s most visited jobs site. About 100 million unique users per month visit the site, and 10,300 new Irish jobs were added in the last week. But despite its success, the company is having its own employment issues. Facebook, Google and Twitter are gobbling up the city’s multilingual sales staff. So online recruiter Indeed apparently has to work much harder to find the right people. How ironic.
