PE Global to create 70 new jobs as part of global expansion plans

Leading Irish recruitment agency PE Global is to create 70 new jobs in 2023, due to rapid growth and further expansion plans. The new jobs will be based across four key locations, covering recruitment, IT, marketing and finance. 


The multidisciplinary recruitment firm, with offices in Cork, Dublin, London and India, currently employs 85 full-time staff across its four offices with an additional 1000 employees through contract and temporary job placements. 


Earlier this year, the company began growing its offering in the DACH region (Germany, Austria and Switzerland) and is now working with a number of clients in the automotive, STEM and IT services industries in the region. PE Global intends to expand this market and set up an office in Germany in 2023. 


Keith McDonagh, Managing Director of PE Global stated, “This is an exciting time for our company as we expand our team in Ireland and overseas. At PE Global we have always been focused on our people and that is what has been the secret to our success. A lot of our staff, myself included, have been on a journey with PE Global for many years, building our company and strengthening its growth. We work with some of the world’s top companies, helping them to source top talent – keeping people at the heart of everything we do. We are delighted to be in a position to expand our team to meet the needs of our growing international business.”


An Tánaiste, Leo Varadkar, Minister for Enterprise, Trade and Employment welcomed the jobs announcement stating, “It is really positive news to see homegrown Irish firm PE Global expanding its global footprint and creating 70 new job opportunities both in Ireland and abroad. Many of these high-quality jobs will be based in the company’s headquarters in Cork, which will be a great boost for the local community and economy. I wish them every success with their expansion.”


Established in Cork in 2005 as PharmEng and later rebranded as PE Global, the firm has grown from small numbers to one of the largest recruitment agencies in Ireland. PE Global works with some of the leading global multinational firms across pharmaceutical, renewable energy, cloud data services, medical device, healthcare, life sciences and engineering, as well as a selection of Ireland’s leading public sector bodies.


Due to high growth and demand for its services, the company is expecting an 85% increase in operating profit since 2021 and a projected turnover of €60 million for 2022.


Under the sub-brands of Locum Express and PE Global Healthcare, PE Global has been a Primary Framework Supplier to the Health Service Executive (HSE) in Ireland since 2010 and to the UK framework to the National Health Service (NHS) since 2017. From November 2022 to January 2023, the company will be supplying Medical Professionals, including Doctors and Nurses to cover the FIFA World Cup through a contract with Qatar’s premier not-for-profit healthcare provider.
