An Irish technology company that matches remote workers with employers offering remote and flexible career opportunities, has launched its service in the UK in its first investment outside Ireland. Abodoo is currently receiving 100 UK candidate registrations per day since its launch in April.
Launched in September 2017, 2018 is Abodoo’s first full year of trading. Wexford couple, Vanessa Tierney and Ben Wainwright, developed the idea for Abodoo after moving back from the UK with their young family. Having found that remote working job opportunities were difficult to find on standard jobs boards, they developed the jobs platform to match candidates with suitable employers offering remote-working career opportunities.
Speaking about the launch, Chief Executive Officer at Abodoo, Sue Marshall said, "In the last 18 months, we’ve seen a positive shift in attitudes to remote working in the UK due to unforeseen incidents like transport strikes, timetable changes, extreme weather and city centre events. Workers who would typically commute into the office needed to work remotely during these events and, as a result, many companies have become more open to the benefits of remote working."
She added, "We’re working with some of the most attractive employers in Ireland and the UK, and we have a range of excellent roles on offer. Our goal is to continue to attract registrations from candidates seeking more flexible careers. Typically, these are professionals who want a career that fits with their lifestyle and allows them to cut out lengthy and costly commutes."
