CEO Denis McCarthy says the highly-skilled roles are well paid and will provide great opportunities;

"The roles that we are looking for are really around software engineering and software development and other similar roles around design and user interfaces,” he said.

Meanwhile in Dublin Spectrum Wellness is trebling its workforce - and hopes to hire 100 people by the end of next year.

Stephen Costello is MD of the firm, which supplies corporate health and wellness programmes to 300 companies here.

“Health and wellness will ultimately affect the bottom line by reducing absenteeism and avoiding workplace related injuries," he said.

“But it really sets your brand apart from other employers in terms of recruitment."

Spectrum is hiring 40 roles immediately.
