International managed services and recruitment process outsourcing company, Guidant Group, has joined forces with sister company, Dublin and Limerick-based Irish Recruitment Consultants (IRC), to launch Guidant IRC in Ireland.
Over recent years, IRC has worked closely with Guidant Group to extend its service offering to the Irish market. The decision to launch the brand in Ireland comes following news that the country’s economy grew three times faster than any other European economy in 2017, which the EU Commission has, in part, attributed to a surge in multinational companies expanding into Ireland.
Consequently, jobs growth in the country is booming, with Central Bank predicting an additional 89,000 people will be hired in Ireland over the next two years, bringing employment to 2.3 million – past peak levels witnessed in 2007.
Guidant IRC will bring an innovative, unique service offering into the Irish market including Managed Services, RPO and Statement of Work. Combined with the Specialist Staffing model which will continue to be offered by IRC, both brands will work seamlessly to design and deliver unique solutions to the benefit of clients operating locally.
Both existing brands and the new entity are part of Impellam – the UK’s second largest staffing business. IRC has been providing recruitment services in Ireland since 1984, and was one of the first staffing agencies established in market.
