HR Buddy have announced the creation of 12 jobs over the next 18 months. This follows the highly successful launch of HR Buddy, Irelands’ first HR solution portal, earlier this year.
The global human resources consultancy currently employs two people. The rapid growth of the business over the past six months has resulted in the need for three hires in 2021 with a further nine planned in 2022. The roles will be equally spread across HR, IT and business development.
Headquartered in Killorglin, Co. Kerry, HR Buddy was established to provide HR Solutions to Irish SMEs. The online HR portal was launched in 2021 having initially provided traditional HR consultancy since 2017. The online portal allows small firms to spread HR costs across the year rather than incurring unpredictable consultancy fees.
Commenting on the expansion, Founder & CEO, Damien McCarthy said, "Following a successful pivot in response to an ever-evolving work environment, we took the decision to invest in a future proofed solution to solve HR challenges which are faced by all business owners. We feel that now is the right time to scale up our business and we need the right people to do this."
