50 new jobs at a recruitment company. That's GOT to be a good sign, right?

Brightwater is hiring the staff across its offices in Dublin, Cork and Belfast.

RECRUITMENT FIRM BRIGHTWATER is hiring 50 extra staff across their three offices in Dublin, Cork and Belfast, the company has confirmed.

The majority of the new jobs will be for recruitment consultants with expertise in banking and financial services, IT, insurance, legal, executive search, and marketing and sales, in addition to a small number of support staff.

It currently employs over 80 people.

“The fact that we as recruiters are recruiting ourselves underpins the increasing recruitment demands and growing confidence in the Irish economy,” Managing Director, David Bloch said in a statement.

While recruitment demands are increasing across the board, we are seeing a particular demand in the areas of IT, banking, legal, HR and office support.

“In tandem with the increasing confidence in business growth, salary expectations are also increasing and we are seeing anything between a 3 per cent to 10 per cent hike depending on the skills and sector.

“The higher end of the scale is particularly relevant to the IT sector where there are vast shortages of key skills and candidates willing to move.”
