The 3 Time Business All-Star Cork based consultancy has announced its plans to expand its operations over the next 18 months which will create 120 new jobs.

45 of these roles will be based in its headquarters in Cork and its Dublin office. The remaining roles will be located in the UK, Shanghai, Singapore and North America.

The Mackin Group is an award-winning business service company. They are 3 Time Business All-Stars and achieved the ‘All-Star International Company of the Year 2020’ accolade from the All-Ireland Business Foundation.

They have extensive experience assisting businesses of all sizes across the globe. They have two main areas of focus, Mackin Talent and Mackin EHS.

The consultancy group currently employs 145 individuals across all 18 of their offices within North America, Europe and the Asia-Pacific region. The purpose of the new roles is to support their expanding client base within the tech sector, in particular, in the social media space.

The business was founded in 2004 by Andy Mackin and reached a turnover of €17 million in 2020. Their customer base has grown by 50% over the last three years. This growth resulted in the company opening an additional six international offices within the last nine months. They plan to open another two offices this year in Sydney in Australia and Colorado in the US.

Responding to the announcement, Andy Mackin said: Over the past few years we have seen substantial growth across both sides of our business. In Ireland alone, we have almost doubled in size every year for the last three years.

He added: “During the pandemic, we saw an increase in demand for both talent management and environmental health and safety services. How and where we work has changed fundamentally, with the long-term impact on the talent pool and the return to the physical office yet to be fully realised. Mackin is uniquely placed to respond to these demands, guiding our customers both in Ireland and overseas.”

An Tánaiste and Minister for Enterprise, Trade and Employment, Leo Varadkar TD said: “It’s fantastic to see an Irish company doing so well and I congratulate the team at Mackin on this expansion which will see 120 new jobs created, 45 of which will be based in Cork and Dublin. Mackin’s success demonstrates the potential of Irish-based companies to grow vibrant, international teams, while retaining and expanding at home. I wish the team the very best of luck with their plans.”
