Not that many companies make the announcements of hiring 500 staff, and really doing it in the short space of time. Usually the recruitment PR lately sounds like XWZ Company is announcing the plan to hire 200 new staff, and then in the small print it also says it is a plan for the next 5 years, while in the first year it will hire 12 staff, and first one and a half positions will be announced immediately!
Well not the Dublin Airport! They really do need to fill the new Terminal 2 with staff shortly, and they need hundreds of people to run that think 24/7.
Irish Jobs Market site has hosted a recruitment site for Dublin Airport Jobs. An announcement on TV covered by all the media brought 10.000 people and more each day after the announcement. Within a week the jobs had to be taken down – such was the amount of applications.
