Sigmar Recruitment is to hire 150 by over the next two-and-a-half years, and 50 of these jobs are expected to be filled by the end of this year. The firm says the jobs will be in recruitment, sales and digital marketing, and are across both experienced and graduate level. As many of the positions are in recruitment, the firm has stated that they expect the new jobs to have a knock-on effect on wider job creation in Ireland. The 150 jobs will be based in Dublin, Galway, Cork and Kerry. Sigmar already employs 120 people in Ireland.
