Specialist healthcare recruiter, TTM Healthcare Group, today announced a major expansion of its Irish and international operations, creating 100 new jobs as part of a €5m investment in its business.

The majority of the jobs will be located in Ennis, Co. Clare but some will also support TTM’s office in Cork, Dublin, London, Preston and Berlin.

TTM Healthcare was founded in Co. Clare in 2002 by CEO, Brian Crowley. Based on continued growth both domestically and internationally, the company is now expanding its operations with an investment of €5m supported by the Department of Jobs, Enterprise and Innovation through Enterprise Ireland.

The 100 new positions, which will be created over the next three years, will be a mix of compliance and recruitment consultants, as well as sales professionals based in Ennis, Cork, Dublin, London, Preston and Berlin and include a number of permanent healthcare professional roles being created in TTM’s healthcare services division. TTM Healthcare currently employs 190 permanent staff and 900 professional healthcare contractors.

TTM Healthcare is one of the largest recruitment agencies in the country and the expansion announced today will see TTM open a new office in Cork, adding to its existing network of Irish offices in Ennis and Dublin. The company is also developing a presence in the west and midlands.

In addition to expanding its operations in the UK and Germany, TTM will also establish a presence for the company in the Middle East in the coming months by opening an office in Abu Dhabi to service the rapidly expanding UAE market.

Welcoming the announcement in Co. Clare today, An Taoiseach Enda Kenny TD said: “The Government, through its enterprise agencies, is supporting job creation right across the western region. I’m delighted to welcome 100 new high quality jobs in TTM Healthcare which is already a very significant employer in the Mid-West region. TTM is an example of the type of Irish company leading our recovery by its expansion into overseas markets while creating new jobs at home. This is at the heart of our Action Plan for Jobs which is building a new, sustainable economy based on exports and innovation.”

Brian Crowley, CEO of TTM added: “Last year, TTM Healthcare helped place more than 3,000 specialist healthcare professionals into employment. This success and our expansion plans are only made possible by the dedication of our staff and our track record of successfully working with major healthcare centres across all our markets.  Our business is based on having great people and we look forward to recruiting more new Irish talent to join our growing team in the Mid-West.

“Internationally, many countries face challenges in healthcare recruitment, with aging populations across Europe creating a growing demand for more specialist healthcare professionals in a variety of settings.

“We believe that TTM Healthcare is well positioned and has the experience and capabilities to exploit these opportunities from our Irish base.”

As well as being a service provider to the NHS, TTM Healthcare is a provider to the UK’s largest healthcare providers including Care UK, Ramsay Healthcare and Nuffield Health.
