4site, a wholly-owned subsidiary of the Indigo Telecom Group Limited, a global provider of telecom and data centre network support services, yesterday announced it will be recruiting more than 100 people, over the next three years, to support its plans for international expansion.
With open-location and office-based roles across Ireland, the roles will span from Fibre Planners, GIS Engineers, Design Engineers, Telecoms Surveyors and Project Managers to business support roles in accounts, sales and operations. Indigo Telecom Group will be recruiting locally from Limerick and the Mid-West in the vicinity of the company’s Irish headquarters at Raheen Business Park.
Established in Magor, South Wales in 1997, Indigo Telecom Group employs more than 400 people across 10 offices in the UK, Ireland, France, Germany and Netherlands. The company is now focused on expanding its skills portfolio to capitalise on the market opportunities around Fibre to the Home (FTTH), wireless, 5G, data centres, digitisation and telco network services.
In 2020 alone, Indigo Telecom Group welcomed 140 people to the team. 4site works closely with Limerick Institute of Technology and the University of Limerick to create job opportunities for their highly skilled graduates.
Welcoming the news yesterday, Tánaiste and Minister for Enterprise, Trade and Employment, Leo Varadkar said, "I am really pleased to see that Indigo Telecom Group, through its Irish subsidiary 4site is expanding in Limerick and will be recruiting over 100 people over the next three years. This is in addition to the 140 new staff that Indigo Telecom Group hired in 2020 - approximately 90 of which were here in Ireland - and underlines the company’s continued commitment to the Mid-West. This year more than ever we have relied on our communications networks to keep in touch and I welcome the expansion of this sector here. I wish Indigo and 4site every success with the expansion plans."
Chairman of Indigo Telecom Group, Kevin Taylor MBE said, "We’re really excited to invest in Ireland, and specifically within the Limerick and surrounding areas. This provides a great opportunity for local staff to join an organisation which is on a high growth trajectory and with plans to expand in 2021 and beyond. For people considering a career in telecoms or a new challenge, there couldn’t be a better time to join a sector that is experiencing exponential growth and playing a critical role in the way we all connect with each other."
