The firm is mainly looking to hire recruitment consultants, but said it also plans to fill a number of support staff positions.
Brightwater managing director David Bloch said that the firm had seen strong demand for recruitment services in a number of sectors over the past year and a half.
“The fact that we as recruiters are recruiting ourselves underpins the increasing recruitment demands and growing confidence in the Irish economy.
“While recruitment demands are increasing across the board, we are seeing a particular demand in the areas of IT, banking, legal, HR and office support,” he said.
Mr Bloch also said that salary expectations were on the rise.
“We are seeing anything between a 3% to 10% hike depending on the skills and sector.
“The higher end of the scale is particularly relevant to the IT sector where there are vast shortages of key skills and candidates willing to move,” he said.
