It was announced last week that Cork-based Crest Solutions has won the top prize of €40,000 in IrishJobs.ie’s ‘Payback Competition’.
The IrishJobs.ie PayBack Competition took place in October and offered a €40,000 cash payment to one IrishJobs.ie customer to grow or improve any aspect of their business. The prize could be used to pay the salary for a new hire, refurbish the office or shop, or to pay for that advertising campaign that they otherwise couldn’t afford.
The Little Island engineering and software company beats off competition from 68 entries from across Ireland to win the competition. Entrants were asked to outline how a recent hire through IrishJobs.ie had helped to improve and grow their business. The submission won over the judging panel, which included Sunday Independent Business Correspondent - Gavin McLoughlin, Jane Lorigan - European CEO of IrishJobs.ie parent company saongroup.com and Safann Mac Carthy - European Marketing Director at saongroup.com.
Speaking last week, General Manager at IrishJobs.ie, Orla Moran said, "We were delighted to receive so many excellent entries in our Payback Competition. Ireland’s thriving, high-value STEM sector was particularly well-represented. This is positive news as the country continues to establish itself as a global leader in tech and engineering."
She added, "Crest Solutions demonstrated this drive, and their ambition to continue to grow their business, upskill staff and create additional high-quality jobs in Cork impressed the judging panel. We offer Mr Madden and the rest of his team our congratulations and continued success in business."
