Sigmar announces the creation of 50 jobs in Co. Kerry

Sigmar is currently seeking candidates to fill 50 vacant positions in international recruitment to work in their new European Talent Hub in Tralee. They are calling for applicants from all backgrounds regardless of experience and education.

Sigmar is investing in the development of a bespoke, world-class learning & development 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.    

Earlier this year, Sigmar announced a strategic partnership with French staffing giant Groupe Adéquat. The partnership deal is structured through a staged equity investment over a five-year period that will see Groupe Adéquat take majority interest.  

Both companies are dominant players in their respective markets and are seeking to expand nationally within Ireland and internationally through organic growth and acquisition. The European Talent Hub in Tralee marks the partnership’s first significant investment in Ireland.    

Speaking following the announcement, Shaun O’Shea, Sigmar Head of European Recruitment said: “As a Tralee native, I am truly delighted to help bring such a positive jobs announcement to the region. . . We are offering exciting and highly rewarding careers for individuals coming from all backgrounds with a core focus on sales and consultancy. Due to our substantial investment into R&D we believe our consultants will be working on new processes and tools which will shape our industry on a global scale for years to come.”
