Indeed, the world’s largest job site, has announced the creation of 600 roles at its Dublin-based headquarters for Europe, the Middle East and Africa (EMEA).

The announcement was made by Indeed CEO Chris Hyams at the company’s newly opened Capital Dock HQ, along with Heather Humphreys TD, Minister for Business, Enterprise, and Innovation, Minister Mary Mitchell O’Connor TD, Minister of State for Higher Education, and Martin Shanahan, CEO, IDA Ireland.

Continuing commitment to Ireland


Indeed opened its Dublin office in 2012 and currently employs more than 1,000 people in the city centre. The announcement of the 600 roles demonstrates Indeed’s continuing commitment to Ireland and the successful role that Dublin has played as Indeed’s EMEA HQ since 2012, the company said.

Recruitment has already started for the new roles across marketing, finance, strategy, operations, sales, client services, HR and business development. Indeed hopes to fill roles within the next five years.

Chris Hyams, CEO at Indeed, said: “Indeed exists to help people get jobs, and as our business grows rapidly, we need even more people to help us with this mission. I am delighted to be announcing 600 new roles in Dublin, a city that Indeed arrived in only seven years ago with just three staff. As the Irish economy has grown, Indeed has had the opportunity to grow a strong EMEA HQ here with an abundance of talented staff.

Minister for Business, Enterprise and Innovation, Heather Humphreys TD said: “It is very positive that a leading international technology firm like Indeed will be significantly expanding its workforce in Ireland. The company’s decision represents a real vote of confidence in Ireland as a place to do business and shows that the country remains highly attractive to overseas investors.”

‘World’s largest job site’


Martin Shanahan, CEO IDA Ireland, said: “I am delighted to welcome Indeed’s plans to further invest in its impressive new EMEA HQ in the heart of Dublin’s Silicon Docks by adding another 600 roles. Indeed’s drive and ambition has resulted in it being the world’s largest job site and Ireland plays a very important role in the ongoing success of the company.”

Indeed also announced its new partnership with the Irish Olympic team. Indeed will be supporting the journey of all Olympic hopefuls as they aim for qualification and a place on Team Ireland. Indeed’s Dublin based workforce welcomed two of their new Team Ireland ambassadors; two-time Olympic Pentathlete Natalya Coyle and first time Olympic hopeful, gymnast Rhys McClenaghan. Thomas Barr and Sanita Puspure were also announced as Indeed Team Ireland ambassadors.

The commitment will extend beyond the Games itself, Indeed will collaborate with the OFI Athletes’ Commission to create a programme of workshops, mentoring and job placements for athletes to help them manage their careers alongside their athletic endeavors and plan for their future working life.

The programme will be a two-way initiative, with Team Ireland athletes providing their knowledge and expertise to Indeed’s Dublin based workforce. In the build up to the 2020 games, Team Ireland athletes and representatives will participate in a series of events for Indeed staff tackling topics such as leadership, resilience and the importance of mental wellbeing and mindfulness.
