20th birthday with growth

One of Ireland's leading recruitment companies, Waterford-based Matrix Recruitment, is celebrating three years of record growth as it marks its twentieth year in business.

Founded by Kieran McKeown in 1998, Matrix began as a specialist accountancy recruitment firm with just two employees based on George Street in Waterford city. Today the company provides a nationwide service in five locations and employs twenty five permanent staff who offer expert recruitment advice across a wide range of sectors.

CEO and Founder, Kieran McKeown said: "I am thrilled we have reached such a major milestone in our development and I would like to thank all the staff, clients, candidates and industry partners for their support of Matrix Recruitment over the past twenty years. From setting up a prosperous Financial Services division to placing one of the first external staff members at the new Center Parcs in Longford, I am already looking forward to the new challenges that lie aad." Matrix successfully embraced the changes that have reshaped the recruitment industry over the past twenty years and it has been a leader in switching from traditional recruitment methods to securing the majority of new candidates through online platforms. As a result, 10,000 new candidates are added to their database each year and over 60% of roles they recruit for come from this pool of people.

Working with national and multinational clients, Matrix Recruitment specialises in permanent, temporary and contract recruitment for accountancy, financial services, engineering, manufacturing, quality & laboratory, supply chain, human resources, office support & IT, and sales & marketing roles. The firm has offices in Dublin, Waterford, Carlow, Athlone and Galway.
