Microsoft is conducting a recruitment drive for IT dream job-seekers

DUBLIN: Microsoft is conducting a recruitment drive aimed at IT dream job seekers. The software giant said it would recruit 200 digital sales jobs within three months to find suitable candidates.

Microsoft Ireland has announced that it is expanding its digital sales workforce by May, adding 200 new employees.

This is Microsoft’s second major job development announcement in three months. In November, the company had invested €27 million in its Dublin engineering hub. 200 new employees were also hired.

With the addition of new employees, Microsoft will have around 3,000 Irish employees. Recruitment for the new posts is being done as the company plans to fill all the vacancies by May. Microsoft has confirmed that new recruits can also work from home, in line with government guidelines. Once restrictions are eased, new staff will be able to assemble with their colleagues at the Leopardstown Campus in Dublin.

The roles available in the new recruitment drive include digital sales positions and cloud solution architects. The company is looking for candidates who are proficient in European languages. “Our existing digital sales team has been working hard to provide organisations in Ireland and across Europe, the Middle East and Africa with digital technologies they need to transform their business model and achieve success,” said Microsoft Ireland Managing Director Cathriona Hallahan.

Microsoft Sales Academy is coming

The company also announced the new Microsoft Sales Academy. It will recruit 25 people from different backgrounds. The Academy is a digital education training program to promote diversity participation in the digital economy. Microsoft has announced that it will have four intake waves per year. Recruiters will have a six-month sales training program. Only then will they be transformed into a digital sales role, the company said.
