Indeed, the leading recruitment site in the U.K., has announced plans to create 600 jobs in Dublin at its headquarters for its businesses in Europe, the Middle East and Africa (EMEA). The jobs will be created over the next five years across finance, marketing, sales, operations, client services, HR and business development.

Indeed opened its first office in Dublin with just three staff and now employs more than 1,000 people at its newly-opened Capital Dock HQ in Ireland’s capital.

The move was announced by Indeed’s new CEO, Chris Hyams (LinkedIn profile) who only started in the role on Apr. 1 following an internal promotion. He took over from Hisayuki Idekoba (Deko).

“Indeed exists to help people get jobs, and as our business grows rapidly, we need even more people to help us with this mission,” Hyams said. “The office here is now almost three times the size Indeed was when we first came to Ireland. Dublin has been a huge part of our growth story. We’re very excited to invest back by bringing more jobs to the city.”

The company was co-founded by Paul Forster and Rony Kahan in 2004 and acquired by Japanese group Recruit Co in 2012.

The EMEA business saw turnover rise by 66 percent to £299.21 million ($386.83 USD) in 2017.
