Pocket Kings to hire 100 EmployeesThis was published 04-02-2011
The subsidiary of Full Tilt Poker, Pocket Kings Ltd. which was founded in September 2003, has reported that it will be recruiting 100 Irish residents for its Dublin base.
Pocket Kings Ltd. currently provides exclusive software development and marketing consulting services for one of the world’s fastest growing poker sites, Full Tilt Poker.
The additional 100 jobs will now bring the workforce at Pocket Kings Ltd’s operations at the Cherrywood Science and Technology Park in Dublin to 800. The staff will be employed to focus on specific requirements that Pocket Kings Ltd. needs in order to expand its operations. This includes Analysts for the French, German and Italian markets and customer service agents for the Japanese, Greek, Norwegian, Hebrew, Russian and Korean markets. These new employees will be paid between €20,000 to €100,000 and more.
Ireland is presently experiencing issues with its economy and it was therefore welcome news when a newspaper from Ireland reported that the company is looking at expanding its workforce.
Since the end of 2009, the number of people employed by Full Tilt Poker has doubled from 390 and a spokesperson for the group confirmed that even after these new posts were filled, Pocket Kings would continue to recruit employees as it is estimated that its growth trend would continue at a strong rate for all of 2011 and beyond.
A spokesperson for Pocket Kings Ltd. said “From our last accounts filing we have sustained our accelerated growth and almost doubled our headcount. Ireland has always been an attractive location for us and continues to be so. The accessibility to a skilled and educated workforce in Ireland along with an attractive corporation tax rate continues to be deciding factors in our decision to remain here.”
