Oxford International to double Cork workforce
IT and Engineering recruitment specialist Oxford International has announced a €16 million investment at its European headquarters, resulting in the creation of more than 50 new jobs over the next 18 months.
The move will nearly double the number of employees to 130 at Oxford International’s Penrose Quay, Cork, facility, primarily serving markets in Western and Central Europe, Scandinavia, and Eastern Europe. The new jobs are primarily recruiters, account managers and administrative positions.
Oxford International is a division of On Assignment which has over 2,850 employees in its network of approximately 130 branch offices throughout the US, Canada, UK, Netherlands, Ireland, Belgium and Spain. The expansion in Cork will make it On Assignment’s largest European office.
Oxford president Michael J. McGowan said: “Cork has been the hub of our European activity since opening our first office here in 1994. Our workforce has steadily grown because of the quality talent pool available in the region. The ease of access to our European markets make it the ideal place to do business.”
The investment is supported by the Department of Jobs, Enterprise and Innovation through IDA Ireland.
