Each month, more than 250 million jobseekers use the website, 3.3 million of those are for the Irish site.

Indeed also announced its official partnership with the Irish Olympic team ahead of Tokyo 2020, with Natalya Coyle, Rhys McClenaghan. Thomas Barr and Sanita Puspure announced as Indeed Team Ireland ambassadors.

The two-way programme will see Team Ireland athletes provide their knowledge and expertise to Dublin's workforce, while Indeed will collaborate with the Olympic Federation of Ireland Athlete's Commission and partners to create workshops, mentoring and job placements for athletes to help them manage their careers whilst competing.

Indeed CEO Chris Hyams said: “Team Ireland represents the pursuit of excellence and the focus needed to achieve a goal.

"We are very proud to be part of the journey to Tokyo 2020 with all the Irish athletes hoping to realise their dreams.

Olympic Federation of Ireland CEO Peter Sherrard said: "Naturally, a huge amount of our focus is on athlete performance but athlete welfare is extremely important to us as well.

"We are very happy that Indeed will provide mentoring, placement and career transition advice to support Team Ireland during the build-up to and transition from the Olympic Games in Tokyo 2020.”
