Sigmar this week announces the creation of 50 jobs in Co. Kerry. The positions are for international recruiters to work in the company’s European Talent Hub, which has just opened in Tralee.

Sigmar is currently seeking job seekers to fill all of the vacant positions and calls for applicants from all backgrounds regardless of experience and education. Sigmar is investing in the preparation and development of successful applicants with its specially-developed, on-site training programme designed to equip individuals with all of the skills and knowledge necessary to become successful international recruitment specialists.

The first of its kind in Ireland, the European Talent Hub will harness international talent for other international markets from its base in Tralee. The Sigmar employees in Kerry will be filling roles in IT for European markets with candidates from other countries.
On making the jobs announcement, Shaun O’Shea, Sigmar Head of European Recruitment comments: “Ireland has the talent to capitalise on current international recruitment opportunities. This investment will kick-start the group’s international growth initially in Germany, then other parts of Europe and the US. Sigmar has been very supportive of regional development and this investment proves our belief in the business case for regionalisation.
Aidan Kelly, President of Tralee Chamber Alliance welcomes the announcement. He says: “Through our team’s engagements with Shaun O’Shea and Sigmar over the past few months, we see this jobs announcement as being a significant endorsement of the real opportunities that are available in Tralee for employers. We look forward to continually supporting Sigmar in their expansion of their Talent Hub in Tralee over the coming years.”
