Fastnet Talent Group Recruitment services for life sciences, agri-food and business services

Despite Ireland’s modest population of 4.5m, the economy continues to perform and excel on the European and global stage, growing five times faster than the average in the Eurozone in 2015 and poised to be the fastest growing economy in the EU in 2016.

There is no doubt that the future is bright for experienced professionals seeking new career opportunities.

Niamh O’Driscoll, managing partner of Fastnet — The Talent Group, said: “The IDA has been very active in attracting new FDI in the life sciences sector, and we’re also seeing a positive impact on SMEs involved in complimentary activities.

The Irish biotech sector, in particular, is experiencing unprecedented growth — with recent investments of over €3bn from leading global companies with Biopharmachem Ireland projecting that current employment of 6,000 in the sector will rise to 11,000 by 2018.

Ms O’Driscoll added: “Fastnet has seen an exponential increase in the demand for niche talent particularly in engineering, quality and compliance, supply chain and finance disciplines over the last 24 months.

“We are looking forward to an exciting, productive 2017 and to partnering with our clients to achieve their growth objectives and to optimise career outcomes for candidates.”

Then why not invest some time into exploring your career options?
