Business growth at TransferMate Global Payments continues as the company plans to double the numbers it had initially planned to recruit in 2015.

In January 2015 TransferMate Global Payments announced that they would be creating 25 new roles at their HQ in Kilkenny. Today the company has announced that these roles were filled by April and that they are now embarking on a second round of recruitment to hire an additional 25 people to deal with the company’s ongoing growth and continued success in Ireland and overseas.

TransferMate.com is becoming well known as a positive disruptor in the financial services industry. A global, Irish-owned company, TransferMate focuses on providing better exchange rates and lower international transfer fees to clients globally compared to those charged by banks.

Speaking of the announcement, Barry Dowling, managing director, TransferMate.com said: “We knew that 2015 was going to be a good year for our business. We are constantly expanding our customer base and as such we are expanding our team to keep pace with our growth.

“The appetite of both businesses and individuals to move away from the traditional methods of transferring money is growing just as we had predicted at the beginning of the year. Consumer behaviour is changing and we are at the forefront of that change, driving the message that companies and individuals have a better, faster, more competitive alternative than the banks. All of which has brought us to a position whereby we need to add 25 people to our team.”

TransferMate say the recruitment process is starting with immediate effect and applicants are invited to apply via the company career page. All 25 positions will be Irish-based dealing with TransferMate’s clients all over the world, with additional positions also opening up in multiple cities overseas. TransferMate are primarily looking to fill in-house and field-based sales roles.

This recruitment process will bring the total number of TransferMate’s employees in Ireland to 130 and globally to 150.

The company has experienced considerable success in the last year and has also expanded its team in its US, Australia and UK offices and is fully licensed to provide services in each of its markets.
