75 jobs announced for Cork city

75 new jobs were announced this morning at a global staffing and consulting company on Leeside.

The new positions at Oxford Global Resources will be created at its European headquarters in Cork city in response to, it said, increased customer demand across Europe.

The 75 new jobs announced today will be in areas such as sales, recruitment, finance, IT, HR, legal, and marketing.

Speaking at an event this morning at the Oxford Cork office, An Taoiseach Micheál Martin said: “Oxford has long been a stalwart of the city centre on Penrose Quay, and it is fantastic to see them once again demonstrate their commitment to Cork with today’s announcement of 75 new roles. Oxford is a shining example of how a company can leverage the benefits of being based in Ireland to drive global growth.”

Rob McGuckin, President and Chief Executive Officer of Oxford said: “One-third of our revenue comes from Europe, and this continues to be spearheaded from our European HQ in Cork. We established our presence in Cork in 1994 with four employees and have since grown to 150 permanent employees in Cork. We look forward to now expanding that team again."

Mary Buckley, Interim CEO of IDA Ireland, said: “Since Oxford established in Cork in 1994, the team has grown from strength to strength. Today’s announcement at its European HQ demonstrates the commitment Oxford has made to the south west region. I wish them continued success.”
