US tech company, Concentrix has chosen Donegal for its initial remote working recruitment drive. This is due to the region’s talent pool and its proximity to Concentrix’s existing offices. They plan to create 50 new remote working jobs throughout Ireland but are focusing initially on Donegal.
The search has already started with opportunities available now with immediate starts. Roles are entirely remote and are open to people situated anywhere in Ireland. They plan to start in Donegal since it is nearby Concentrix’s offices situated in Derry and Belfast. They also have a presence in Dublin.
The business also chose Donegal due to its great potential. Donegal has a rich talent pool of well-educated individuals and Concentrix wants these people to join its company but still to give them the flexibility.
The US tech company offers customer experience tools to businesses across the globe. This includes over 95 Fortune Global 500 companies. They employ over 4,300 individuals in Ireland and have 270,000 team members around the world.
Donegal TD and Minister for Agriculture, Food and the Marine, Charlie McConalogue said: “The fact that a global company such as Concentrix has targeted Donegal for the first phase of their recruitment campaign is a testament to the education, skill, and ability of the Donegal workforce.”
“The fact that these 50 jobs are remote working opportunities is a clear sign that Donegal is a place to grow our remote working offering, which will, in turn, develop and enhance our rural communities.”
The Irish Government has been working tirelessly to find ways to make remote working a permanent choice after the COVID-19 pandemic. Leo Varadkar recently published legislation that gives Irish workers the right to ask their employer for remote working.
