An Irish recruitment company is to create 150 new jobs in Dublin, Cork, Galway and Kerry.
Fifty of the new jobs at Sigmar Recruitment will be filled by year end.
The remaining positions in consultation, sales and digital marketing will be filled by 2018.
Sigmar CEO Adie Mc Gennis says it is a very positive development.
He said: "We currently have a strong presence in Dublin, Cork and Galway, but we've recently set up an office in Tralee which is going to be the hub of our centre of excellence.
"We've also set up a small office in Kilkenny, so it's great news for everyone - our clients, our candidates, the community in general and mainly our staff."
