PE Global, headquartered at Eastgate Avenue, Little Island, Cork and with offices in Dublin and London, has seen demand for its services on an upward trajectory with recent wins with UK entities (including the NHS) and global blue-chip companies. The company offers tailored recruitment solutions to the pharmaceutical, biotechnology, healthcare, IT, finance and construction sectors in Ireland and internationally, placing contract and permanent staff.

Managing Director of PE Global, Michael O’Brien in announcing the new wins, stated:

‘The world and Ireland has opened up for talented people, whether they are engineers, scientists, doctors, buyers, financiers or operatives. The opportunities are many, and the ability to move between different countries and cultures is an attractive option. We recruit and supply candidates all over the world, including Ireland, the UK, Europe, the Middle East, Africa, Asia and Australia. Closer to home, now that Brexit has challenged market indicators in the UK, organisations in that country are conscious that they must retain their talent and look to the future, and we are seeing a definite upward trend in demand for professionals in the healthcare, IT, finance and construction sectors.

‘Recently awarded a place on two NHS Clinical Staffing Frameworks, we can now supply temporary staff to clinical positions in the UK and we are preferred suppliers of permanent and contract personnel to several large entities, including large Managed Service Providers and the global leader in integrated workforce solution delivery. We are currently recruiting urgently for positions in the Finance, IT, Pharmaceutical and Healthcare arenas, both in Ireland and abroad, as can be seen through online platforms and our website

‘As a consequence of the increase in the number of roles we are currently filling we are also hiring recruiters for PE Global. Anyone interested in applying for a role should send their CV to’ added Mr. O’Brien.

Director of Operations at PE Global, Keith McDonagh, added:

‘Meanwhile, the home market is strengthening daily, and opportunities abound for the right people. We enjoy long-term partnerships with several multinational companies on our books and have placed over 1,000 contractors in Ireland alone and just under 1,000 permanent professionals both at home and abroad year-to-date in the lifesciences, healthcare, IT, finance, construction and pharmaceuticals sectors. Companies like ours are, therefore, the conduit for domestic and global players, providing a talent bank that is both relevant to their needs and cost-effective’.

Mr. McDonagh added that the rise in workplace opportunities in Ireland and abroad is surely a strong indicator of a global recovery, with its resultant benefits to people, services, and nations. ‘Talent will win out, and the world’s your oyster’ Mr. McDonagh concluded.
