Speaking on their hiring plans, Sigmar’s Head of European Recruitment, Shaun O’Shea commented; “As a Tralee native, I’m immensely proud of Sigmar’s growth here in Tralee. When we opened the office two years ago, we knew there was demand for international IT recruitment services, but the rapid growth of Sigmar’s presence has exceeded our expectations. It’s an exciting time!”

With an extensive training programme provided, applicants from all backgrounds can apply for these positions meaning you do not need to have prior recruitment experience.

“Our team is made up of college graduates to those with backgrounds in hospitality or customer service and of course recruitment specialists. We invest heavily in learning & development to equip new hires with all of the skills and knowledge necessary to become successful recruitment specialists so prior experience is not necessary,” says O’Shea.

“Within a 20-mile radius of where we are based are hundreds of people who have the right profile for the roles we’re looking to fill, and we have plenty to offer them. We obsess about how we can create the best culture and an amazing opportunity for talented individuals.”

The company offer a range of flexible work arrangements such as flexible hours, shorter working weeks, remote working options. Along with healthcare, bike to work scheme, free fruit, five a side soccer, yoga and jujitsu classes to name but a few of the benefits provided to staff.

Employee Testimonials

“I had been working in recruitment for 2 years in the UK before hearing about Sigmar. When I saw I could continue with the career path I am passionate about, but also be closer to home, it seemed too good to be true! Since joining I’ve been made feel part of the family, thanks to the great people I’m surrounded by every day.

Working with such a young, vibrant bunch of colleagues really makes the ups and downs of recruitment (which are inevitable!) a lot easier to handle. Another thing I’ve been extremely appreciative of at Sigmar, is the work/life balance.

Sigmar take their employees’ wellbeing very seriously, and hold weekly events (5 a side soccer, yoga classes etc..) to make sure everyone stays active and gets out of the office! I couldn’t be happier I made the decision to move home and join Sigmar!” 

— Aisling O’Donovan, Business Intelligence & Data Science Recruitment Specialist

“When I graduated, I felt I was at a crossroads as I didn’t know what I wanted to do. There aren’t a lot of opportunities in Tralee in my field of study.

Sigmar coming to Tralee gave me the chance to explore a new path. Recruitment was never a career I ever considered before it. I’m working here over a year now and I don’t feel like another number or cog in the machine.

I feel the work I do here is recognised and appreciated throughout all levels from top to bottom. There’s a great atmosphere where we have the right balance of working hard and having fun along the way.  

When we hit monthly targets, we are regularly rewarded with pizza & beer, a key to any man’s heart. But my highlight is being taken abroad each year for our Christmas party!

— Eric Bohan, Market Specialist

“I joined Sigmar 2 years ago, having no recruitment industry experience. From the beginning, Sigmar have provided me with invaluable mentorship, training and support.

This year I have been promoted to a management role within the team. It’s great that I am now able to offer the same support and guidance that allowed me to succeed to recruitment newbies in Tralee.” 

Jilly O’Keeffe, Talent Sourcing Manager
