Our core philosophy when it comes to hiring people is one that weighs more on ‘fit’ than on ‘form’. Given our market leading position, our organisational culture & climate and our strongly held belief in the value of geographic information, it is critically important that we hire people who have a natural fit with all three of these themes.
In this way we hire people to have a career with us and not just to fulfill an immediate need. Regardless of whether a role is actively advertised, if the right person with the right aptitude is available, we’ll work to find them a suitable position in our organisation.
We invest a great deal of time in our recruitment process to ensure that new hires fit with our values and culture. We filter everything we see and hear from prospective candidates throughout the interview process, through our core values of:
- Honesty and Integrity
- Knowledge and Expertise
- Teamwork and Collaboration
- Work-life balance
Our great workplace
At Esri Ireland we pride ourselves on being a diverse, high trust organisation and our team of 57 are represented by 10 different countries; Ireland, Northern Ireland, UK, Australia, New Zealand, South Africa, India, Kazakhstan, the US and Poland. We’ve won two Special Achievement Awards from Great Place to Work Ireland: one “Speaking Practice” Award in 2018 and more recently, we won the Great Place to Work "Best Team Award".
We have a fundamental belief in the fact that it is people that drive business, encapsulated in a people development strategy, as opposed to a people management process. One of our values is Knowledge & Expertise. We continuously invest in and support the development of our team and are committed to keeping their skills up-to-date and improving these as necessary. In our view, developing people is not just about technical skills and expertise but just as importantly it is also about developing the softer skills associated with behaviour, attitude and competency.
