A Riverstick wastewater treatment business, Ireland Waste Water (IWW) has announced plans to double its staff numbers with the recruitment of 10 new workers to its team. IWW are looking to fill the positions – most of which will be based at their HQ in Cork, in several areas – namely, technical sales, service, administration, finance, project management and general operations.
The recruitment drive is part of the business’s wider expansion plans following several years of steady and quickening growth. IWW has reported very strong demand for their newest addition to their product line – Circle 7 – an innovative water purifying system which is the first of its kind in the world. However, the waste water specialists are reporting a ‘challenging’ jobs marketplace in their quest to find the right candidates with the experience required.
IWW is a privately owned Irish company founded in Cork by Mary and Niall Mulcahy over twenty years ago. It designs, manufactures and installs precast concrete wastewater treatment systems, septic tanks, interceptors, grease traps and rainwater harvesting systems. They also manufacture precast holding tanks for farm effluent, drinking water, etc. The total septic tank market in Ireland is estimated to be worth more than €3 billion.
Speaking of their plans for growth, Mary Mulcahy co-founder of IWW stated “we are going to add 10 more people to our fantastic team by the end of the year – and it’s likely we will grow by another 10 in 2020. We’ve been lucky to date in that people who work with us not only have the skills we need but the work ethos we admire. However, employment levels in Ireland at high at the moment – and this is great, but it does present some challenges for employers.”
