Irish recruitment firm AA Euro Group is to open five new offices across Europe as part of the company's international expansion plans.

Established in 2005, the company now has 50 full time staff operating in locations including Cork, Kildare, London, Amsterdam, Copenhagen and Zagreb.

The opening of AA Euro Group's new offices in Belgium, Denmark, Germany, England and Portugal will extend its European network to 14 offices in 11 countries.

AA Euro Group said it plans to fill 1,000 roles for its client companies over the next three years, securing jobs for candidates in Ireland, the UK and continental Europe.

It has already helped over 6,500 people find new jobs in construction, engineering and other projects through its European network of offices.

It was recently selected as the recruitment partner for large data centre projects in the Netherlands and in Denmark and for a large-scale low carbon energy project in the UK.

Denis Casey, Group Operations Director for AA Euro Group, said this was a really exciting time for the company as it is in a position to deliver an enhanced level of service to existing and new clients across Ireland, the UK and Europe.

"We have grown the business together as a team and our model of sourcing talent from across international markets means that we can reach a wider candidate base for our clients and access the best talent. We are delighted to also offer new and exciting opportunities to our candidates in Ireland and further afield," Mr Casey said.

"It is really important to us that we support our clients and candidates throughout the recruitment process, from the initial conversation through to the interview process and placement in new roles," he said.

"Compliance is also a cornerstone of our approach and we take measures to ensure that every role fulfils the labour and licensing requirements of the local jurisdiction," he added.
