45 new financial services jobs

The company established to manage Bank of Scotland Ireland’s Irish loan book, Certus, is to create 45 jobs.

Certus is expanding its operations as it embarks on a significant recruitment drive for experienced and recent graduate hires.

Human resources director Gavin Lyng said they are offering people an opportunity to join an ambitious organisation. “Our focus is to continue to grow the business and we are offering potential candidates the chance to join a young, dynamic and ambitious organisation,” said Mr Lyng.

Established in late 2010, Certus is a provider of out- sourced debt and portfolio management services for financial organisations in Ireland and the North.

The company employs more than 800 staff and provides a range of services including loan servicing, arrears management and corporate and retail debt management and recovery.

The positions will be based in Dublin at Certus’s head office on St Stephen’s Green and are mainly in debt management and collection.

Certus will take on 30 experienced candidates and15 graduates, who will be part of a new trainee programme. They will have an initial 18-month contract. Candidates must have a 2.2 degree or higher.

Mr Lyng said: “[The] recent survey from the European Graduate Barometer, showing a collapse in confidence among Irish third-level students in regards to their career prospects, the current climate means there is more competition for places. We are pleased to be a company that is actually recruiting quality graduates into real jobs.”
