Media Release – October 23, 2018
Azon Recruitment Group today announced the official opening of their new Limerick offices at Riverstone Clock Tower, Hartstonge Gate, Henry Street. The new offices in the heart of the business district in Limerick city have capacity for 35 people.
Ronan Colleran, CEO of Azon Recruitment Group commented: “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”.
With the cost-of-living and housing crisis in Dublin and with the movement of UK based Asset Managers and Financial Services firms to Ireland as a result of Brexit, Limerick is in a strong position to take advantage of these market factors and events. 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. These employment opportunities are the fruits of an enhanced focus by Government agencies seeking to attract companies and investment to the Mid-West and supporting Irish companies with their international growth agenda from the Mid-West. In addition, the good work of local organisations such as Limerick and Shannon Chambers have been central to the promotion of the region.
Dee Ryan, CEO of Limerick Chamber commented: “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”.
