Driver and depot roles across the country...
Nightline, which styles itself as Ireland’s largest independent logistics and delivery service, is to create 150 new driver and depot roles as its business expands, principally due to online shopping.
As part of a €3m invesment, the courier firm has opened three new depots in Swords, County Dublin; Omagh, County Tyrone; and Kilbarry in Waterford. It has also launched new evening and weekend services.
The new positions will include delivery driver posts, depot support staff and sortation shift staff across various locations in Ireland.
Jobs Minister Mary Mitchell O'Connor joined Nightline CEO John Tuohy in making the announcement.
Tuohy praised the introduction of Eircodes in improving business.
"The implementation of Eircodes has also greatly improved our business’ efficiency and has allowed us to enhance our customer delivery experience.
"We are proud to bring exciting innovation to Irish consumers and are committed to making deliveries even more efficient, providing increased accessibility to all our customers."
Mitchell O’Connor said:
“At the moment Ireland has one of the fastest growing employment rates in Europe, and it is homegrown companies such as Nightline which are helping to sustain this. I am particularly pleased that this expansion will lead to job growth in regions around Ireland."
Last week, Nightline's competitor Swiftway announced the creation of 100 new jobs, principally to service growth in online shopping deliveries.
