Taxback International, a leading VAT recovery specialist, will create 80 new positions at their Kilkenny headquarters, they confirmed last Friday.

The global company, which is part of the Taxback Group which employs over 1,200 people globally, say it is recruiting across a number of departments to deal with increased demand from Irish and global clients.

Catherine Quirke, Chief Commercial Officer of Taxback International, also happens to be from Muckalee.

She is thrilled to be recruiting for exciting roles in Kilkenny. She said: “The pool of talent in Kilkenny is second to none.” Ms Quirke said the positions will be filled with the “highest calibre” of people.

She added: “We estimate that there is €60bn of VAT to be recovered globally every year.”

Minister of State for Trade and Employment, Pat Breen, said: “This is a marvellous day for Kilkenny. This is a great success story and is even better that it’s here.”

Taxback International say recruitment is already underway and is focusing on roles from graduates to senior- level executives in the areas of sales and marketing to accelerate the global reach of the business, as well as R&D roles to support their exciting product development roadmap.

The Taxback Group was founded by Terry Clune in 1996 and employs 1,200 people globally.
