Irish Recruiter PE Global doubles staff

Irish recruiter PE Global doubles staff

An Irish recruiter supplying candidates to the global oil and gas sector has doubled its own staff numbers in the past year and plans to create ten more new jobs this year.

PE Global has created 15 jobs, bringing the Cork company’s current staff numbers to 30.

New roles in recruitment, sales, marketing, and administration have been created, in response to the recent uplift in Ireland’s labour market.

PE Global’s managing director, Michael O’Brien, said demand for candidates in Norway’s oil and gas sector was particularly strong.

“One of our key clients is based in Norway and European workers are flocking there for better-paying jobs,” he said.

“Norway is western Europe’s biggest oil producer and, with an economy stoked by oil riches, it is becoming a winner in the race for skilled workers.”

PE Global is celebrating a decade in business this year.

“Over the years, we have reacted to domestic and global economic changes by diversifying into new industries,” said O’Brien.

“We started out as a small agency providing engineering services to pharmaceutical companies in the domestic and European markets.

“After two years, we started to grow in response to market demand, resulting in diversification into new markets, including the medical healthcare and oil and gas sectors.

“In 2007, demand was increasing for engineers and contractors for international engineering and construction companies in various industries around the globe, so we made the decision to expand our services to provide resources for the construction, mining, renewable energy, and IT sectors.”

PE Global works with pharmaceutical and biotech firms in Ireland and Britain, including Johnson & Johnson and Amgen.

It supplies personnel to the IT, financial, manufacturing, business services, and food industries.
