Limerick, 2 March 2011 – Irish-owned global professional recruiter Morgan McKinley has launched a dedicated IT recruitment division in its Limerick office, consolidating its position as Ireland’s market leader in IT recruitment consultancy.
The new division will draw on the experience and expertise of Morgan McKinley’s established IT teams in Cork and Dublin to cater to the significant growth in demand for IT professionals across all industries in Limerick, Galway and the Mid-West.
The announcement coincides with Morgan McKinley’s latest Irish Employment Monitor which registered a 37% year-on-year increase in new professional job vacancies in January 11. This was the highest volume of job vacancies recorded since October 08 and a positive indicator for the professional jobs market at the start of the New Year. The Irish Employment Monitor also recorded a 35% increase in IT job vacancies from Q3 10 to Q4 10.
Limerick’s new IT division will be led by Elaine Kennedy, who with over eight years’ experience in the industry and a BSc in Computer Science, is well versed in the latest IT trends and developments.
Elaine Kennedy, Manager, Morgan McKinley commented:
