 Indeed to hire 600 additional staff in Dublin as it expands into new Capital Dock HQ

Indeed, the world’s largest job site, have announced the creation of 600 new roles at its Dublin-based headquarters for Europe, the Middle East and Africa (EMEA)...

The announcement was made by Indeed CEO Chris Hyams at the company’s newly opened Capital Dock HQ, along with Heather Humphreys T.D., Minister for Business, Enterprise, and Innovation, Minister Mary Mitchell O’Connor T.D., Minister of State for Higher Education, and Martin Shanahan, CEO, IDA Ireland.

Indeed opened its Dublin office in 2012 and currently employs over 1,000 people in the city centre. Today’s announcement of 600 new roles demonstrates Indeed’s ongoing commitment to Ireland and the successful role that Dublin has played as Indeed’s EMEA HQ since 2012.

Recruitment has already started for the new roles across marketing, finance, strategy, operations, sales, client services, HR and business development, 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 hope to fill roles within the next five years.

Those who join Indeed can expect to avail of a range of benefits, including: health insurance for both employees and their families; flexible annual leave; catered meals and snacks; weekly social events, and complimentary wellness programmes and fitness classes.

Minister for Business, Enterprise and Innovation, Heather Humphreys T.D. said: “It is very positive that a leading international technology firm like Indeed will be significantly expanding 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.

“While Indeed’s expansion plans are the latest in a series of positive investments by multinational companies in Ireland, we cannot take future successes for granted. That is why the Government is continuing – including through our adoption of the Future Jobs strategy – to prepare our economy and workforce to adjust to emerging challenges and opportunities. We will remain focused on our goal of building an even more resilient and innovative economy that can evolve and prosper well into the future.”

Minister of State for Higher Education, Mary Mitchell O’Connor T.D. said: “I am delighted to see the continuing expansion of Indeed and welcome the fact that it is able to offer highly skilled career opportunities to the graduates of Ireland’s third level institutions. The Government is committed to ensuring that Irish universities are world class and we are fully aware that one of the key differentiators that has attracted international companies to locate here is the quality of our graduates and education system.”

Martin Shanahan, CEO IDA Ireland, which supported Indeed’s initial move into Ireland said: “Indeed first came to Ireland just 7 years ago to internationalise its business and to serve its growing customer base. In that time, Ireland has proven to be a superb location for the company to quickly expand its footprint into the EMEA market.  Indeed is now a highly significant employer in Dublin and is firmly embedded in its business ecosystem.  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.”
