eir is Ireland’s leading provider of fixed-line and mobile telecommunications services with 2.5 million fixed and mobile customers.

Sapient, meanwhile, is a leading specialist provider of end-to-end recruitment and human resources services. The organisation partners with Hireserve to provide Hireserve ATS to its clients. 

Sapient and the eir Group have been working together for over a decade, and in 2010 eir adopted Hireserve ATS to help implement a new apprenticeship programme – the first for 30 years. 

“Our Apprentice Programme is a great opportunity for the successful applicants. It’s a fantastic way for us to invest in the future of our business, while offering the apprentices a great start to their careers…The support and collaborative relationship delivered by Hireserve/Sapient enabled us to offer an excellent candidate experience.”

Using Hireserve ATS enhanced eir’s data processing and reporting and offered improved candidate management tools and processes.
