You will be a point person for on the ground HR support in our Galway, Ireland office, and will be responsible for the coordination of our office and employee experience.

i.e. organizing events, ordering office supplies, coordinating visitors from other offices, etc.). You will also play a key role in candidate experience, managing our front desk and greeting all visitors and candidates.

You will partner closely not just with Galway Leadership, but also with our Talent Management, Employee Experience, Office Experience, Talent Acquisition, Total Rewards, Training, Legal, and Payroll teams in the US.
