Indeed to Hire 500 New Dublin Staff

Job website Indeed announced on Wednesday expansion plans for its Dublin-based headquarters for Europe, the Middle East and Africa (EMEA), adding 500 new employees over the next two years.

The company has already started recruiting for sales, client services, HR, business development, marketing, finance, strategy and operations roles, which will help companies across EMEA to maximise the return on their recruitment spend, while continuing to offer the best job search experience for jobseekers.

Indeed has sites in more than 60 countries and 28 languages. Unlike job sites that only show paid listings, Indeed brings together the most job listings from employer career sites, staffing agencies, job boards, and career pages. Every month over 200 million jobseekers visit Indeed to find and apply for jobs through a desktop, tablet, or smartphone. Indeed allows jobseekers to create job alerts which notify them as soon as new jobs are posted meeting their unique criteria.

Indeed offers a variety of perks and benefits to attract and retain the very top talent, including:

  • Open ‘Paid Time Off’ (holiday can be taken throughout the year, without a cap)
  • Catered meals, endless snacks & drink options and weekly happy hours
  • Wellness programmes, fitness classes and family fun days
  • Office leisure including ping pong and pool tables
  • Affinity groups for employees to connect over common interests
  • Healthcare for employees and families

Supported by the Department of Jobs, Enterprise and Innovation and the IDA, Indeed opened its Dublin office in March 2012 and currently employs a team of 530 people in its St. Stephen’s Green office.

“Today’s announcement is a particularly important one for Indeed,” President of Indeed, Chris Hyams, said. “Deciding where to recruit and hire the right people ultimately helps us to fulfil Indeed’s mission – to help people get jobs. 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. 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.”

Taoiseach Enda Kenny said: “I welcome today’s announcement of 500 new jobs by Indeed. 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. The Government’s Action Plan for Jobs 2017 aims to keep Ireland competitive to new investment by EMEA HQ’s such as Indeed. 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.”
