If a new job is one of your goals for 2021, there were lots of opportunities announced this month that are worth considering. Just this week, logistics firm CH Robinson said it will be hiring for 30 people in Cork.
Sports tech company Orreco also announced recruitment plans for Galway and Indigo Telecom is set to fill a number of remote roles at its Limerick-based subsidiary 4Site. Financial software firm Glantus will be hiring too, with 15 jobs opening up at its new sales and marketing hub in Newry.
