New Partnership with Experis Ireland

Experis Ireland has teamed up with Borderless Talent and launched the campaign “No Craic Like Home” targeting Irish expats. As the Irish economy booms and the Government targets job growth, it is the perfect time for expats to return.

Experis Ireland has the knowledge and contacts in the Irish market to help returning expats secure jobs, and Borderless Talent can reach out to expats living overseas – predominantly in Australia and New Zealand.

“This partnership has huge potential. With our long standing in the Irish market and Borderless Talents global reach we believe the campaign will be an incredible long-term success,” said Andrew Crawford, Head of Experis Ireland.

The Irish economy is booming. Unemployment is at 8.6%, its lowest since 2007 and has recovered from the recession which saw unemployment climb to 15% in 2012. The Irish Governments Action Plan for Jobs, which this year aims to add 50,000 jobs to the market and 200,000 jobs by 2020, is helping to attract international firms, with low taxes and skilled workers.

Start-ups are soaring and are seeing huge financial backing from overseas investors. In the last 12 months, start-ups brought in €220 million, with most coming from European and American investors. Ireland is serious competition in the international market.

With this increase in investment and jobs comes the need for skilled workers, Experis Ireland, and Borderless Talent saw an opportunity to fill a gap – getting expats home, and so the campaign “No Craic Like Home’ was born.

“We’re seeing increased demand across the country, such as IT security professionals for clients in Galway and Software Engineers in Dublin and Kildare. There has been a significant increase for professionals in the Life Sciences sector. This demand is coming from pharmaceutical and medical devices companies who are opening or extending their bases in Ireland, particularly Experis Ireland’s clients in Munster and South-East Ireland.

“We know that many Irish abroad would like to come home, but the state of the economy in the past meant it was better for them financially and professionally to stay away. However, this has changed and now there are opportunities for career advancement and financial gain.

“Companies are willing to pay to get the talent they need and invest in their development. When you come back with good international experience you will be in high demand across many industries, and there is no craic like home!” said Crawford.
