PM Group to recruit 500 graduates over next five years
Irish-based PM Group has announced the recruitment of around 500 graduates over the next five years, as it announced operating profits of €10.9 million for the year ending 31st December 2015.
At least half of these graduates will be sourced in Ireland, across all engineering disciplines as well as architecture, environmental, construction and project management. Recruitment is already underway.
The profits announced represent an increase of 21% on the prior year’s record performance, according to PM. While turnover was down on 2014 due to a reduction in construction “pass through” revenue, trading improved with a 3% increase in underlying fee revenues.
PM Group Chairman, Dan Flinter, said: “A particular highlight in 2015 was the acquisition, using Group resources, of the 24.6% shareholding owned by AMEC Foster Wheeler. The outcome of this initiative means that PM Group is now 100% owned by our employees.
“As we pursue our business strategy, it is essential that we continue to attract the top talent across all disciplines who are interested in working on leading edge projects for international clients here in Ireland, and across our overseas markets. It is a mark of our ambition that we are recruiting 500 graduates.”
