TULLA-based company Beckman Coulter is among the West of Ireland firms who are hoping to attract staff looking to relocate in the wake of the pandemic.
It comes as the Western Development Commission (WDC) launched a new online jobs portal aimed at attracting professionals and their families to make new lives in Clare and the western region generally. The site, WesternJobs.ie, will help job seekers to find open roles across the region and assist employers in gauging the availability and depth of skills that they require.
Commenting, Orlaith Lawler, Senior Director of Beckman Coulter, said her organisation welcomed the chance to be involved. “We are delighted to feature the open roles that we have available here at Beckman Coulter on Westernjobs.ie,” she said. “The portal will act as a one-stop shop to help attract the best talent to the West of Ireland. At Beckman Coulter, we have numerous opportunities for talented, ambitious people.”
Quin native and CEO of WDC Tomás Ó Síocháin, said the initiative comes in response to the significant numbers of people looking to move to the west.
“Westernjobs.ie is unique in that it will allow people to signal an interest to move west.,” he said. “Research carried out by the WDC indicates that while many people have already moved west over the last year, a significant number are considering the move west, if the right opportunity presents itself. As well as senior roles that are currently open, Westernjobs.ie will help to attract other employers looking for talent and allow those that move the opportunity to get their next move and, more importantly to build a career. The WDC is supporting the transition to remote work and remote working hubs toward balanced regional development, this will be the first step many will take in finding out that there is #MoreToLife on Ireland’s Atlantic Coast.”
