AZON Recruitment has officially opened its new Limerick offices on Henry Street.

The new facility at Riverstone Clock Tower, Hartstonge Gate, has the capacity for some 35 staff.

Azon Recruitment chief executive Ronan Colleran said: “With a team on the ground in Limerick for the past 18 months, our further investment in the Mid-West is a testament to the renewed employment activity in the region and to the attractiveness of Limerick and the Mid-West as a location to base from for both Irish indigenous corporates and multinationals.”

“With the economic recovery, the Mid-West is now a location of choice for many of our clients. We are delighted to be working with them in sourcing quality talent to support their business growth,” he added.

The company said Limerick was strong position to take advantage of market factors and events including the movement of UK-based firms to Ireland as a result of Brexit.

Azon also said that continued investment in infrastructure in the region has led to a regeneration ensuring Limerick’s appeal to both businesses and professionals who are seeking career opportunities.

Limerick Chamber CEO Dee Ryan welcomed that Azon has selected Limerick as its “destination of choice for their first operations outside of Dublin.

“This is further evidence of the strong growth which we are experiencing in our local economy.”

“Specialist recruiters like Azon are addressing the demand from national and multinational employers for an educated and skilled talent pool. The Mid-West offers candidates a better work life balance without sacrificing career progression prospects.

“We warmly welcome Azon’s expansion announcement today and the endorsement it is for the Limerick Region as a place where you can have a career and not just a job,” she added.
