The VAT-recovery company on Friday announced 80 new positions at their Kilkenny HQ.

Taxback International, which is part of the Taxback Group, employs over 1,200 people globally and will see the 80 positions created as there is an increased demand from Irish and global clients.

Recruitment is already under way and the company is looking at a wide range of individuals, all the way from graduates to senior-level executives in the areas of sales and marketing and also R&D.

Chief Commercial Officer of Taxback International Catherine Quirke said of the news: “VAT recovery is becoming an increasingly important service to businesses worldwide as companies look to increase their bottom line, which is why demand for our service is growing at a rapid pace. It is incredible to see our growth over the last few years. Our reputation in the industry is unparalleled and our corporate strategy has focused our reach into global territories, resulting in the success we have seen to-date. It’s a truly exciting time for everyone in the company.”

For the second year in a row, the Taxback Group has been named a Great Place to Work and has seen its global footprint in sales expand over the last 12 months to the likes of Australia, China, Japan, the UK and the US. The organisation has also relocated to four larger processing and operations locations in Europe.

Brendan Ahearne, HR Director of Taxback International, said: “We have an excellent team at Taxback – like-minded, talented, hardworking individuals who are the force driving this company forward. The pool of talent in Ireland is second to none so we are in a very fortunate position being based in Kilkenny – we don’t have to look too hard to find the right people.”

Catherine Quirke concluded: “This announcement is a testament to our continued commitment to Kilkenny and Ireland as a place to do business.

“Taxback International is an Irish company making a significant international impact. From a modest team of just seven Business Development Managers based in Kilkenny, we have won global deals with some of the largest companies in the world like ITW, Electrolux, Honeywell, Mondelez and Bloomberg. All the pieces are in place: the people, the technology, and the know-how. Our goal now is to capitalise on this success by continuing our rapid global expansion and be seen as the true global industry leaders in our market.”
