Fragomen, the global immigration services provider, has today announced the opening of an office in Dublin’s city centre.
The firm invested significant resources into the new Dublin office to accommodate its portfolio of multinational clients.
Fragomen aim to create 20 new jobs for specialists in the next six months.
At present, the company has more than 3,400 staff in more than 40 offices worldwide. It works with clients to facilitate the transfer of skilled employees into over 170 countries.
The Dublin office, led by Bill Foster. a Fragomen partner previously based in London, will manage immigration queries, applications and compliance from an Irish perspective.
This will facilitate Fragomen’s global client base located outside of Ireland.
Mr Foster said:
““The new office opening is driven by the need to service our clients’ rapid growth in Ireland. We can best serve their needs from an office on the ground in Dublin. We have seen a significant increase in client confidence across Ireland and anticipate this will continue as the deadline for Britain leaving the EU draws closer.”
An Tánaiste and Minister for Business, Enterprise and Innovation Frances Fitzgerald expressed her excitement over a company of Fragomen’s “calibre” arriving to Ireland.
Ms Fitzgerald said:
“Fragomen’s establishment here will assist FDI companies who are either relocating existing staff from abroad or sourcing new staff, in circumstances where immigration requirements apply.
“Just recently Ireland was named as the best country in the world for attracting high-value FDI for the sixth year in a row.
“These high tech companies sometimes need to bring in specialist expertise from abroad for their Irish operations and the services to be provided by Fragomen will make that process easier and more streamlined for their clients.”
Fragomen Ireland Ltd is based at Grand Canal Dock in Dublin 2.
