Property firm creates 20 tech jobs

TWENTY positions have been created at a Kerry- based property management firm to meet growing demands in property sales.

Aspen Grove are hiring 20 workers for immediate start with its development and networking teams to meet with the company’s growing client base and five-year expansion plan.

The graduate-level positions include project managers, software developers and designers. This will be in addition to the 15 people recruited for positions at the firm’s headquarters in the Kerry Technology Park earlier this year. The firm, which provides web-based management solutions for the real estate market, manages the sale of properties to the tune of €1 billion and more than €10bn of property valuations every month.

Aspen Grove chief executive Sean Ryan said the positions would be a huge boost to the technology sector in the Tralee and Kerry area. “Over $50bn (€40bn) worth of properties have been sold and millions of property valuations have been processed through Aspen Grove solutions in the last number of years. We are growing our business ... this is our second major expansion this year.

Mr Ryan added that while the firm was looking for people with over three years’ experience, he would encourage recent graduates who felt they were suitable to apply. “We are also hoping to attract people living outside of Kerry... We want to show that... Kerry is a great place for people to improve their working and family life while advancing their technical career.”

* Aspen Grove will hold a recruitment day for the positions at the Kerry Technology Park on September 11.
