Four months after its launch, Sixt Leasing Ireland announced that it will recruit 25 new people in the country during the next two years.

The global leasing and rental company currently employs five people in Ireland and its latest recruit is Anthony Cloonan who joins as account manager, having previously worked in an asset management role at CIT.

The planned new roles will be in sales and marketing, customer service and finance.

“We’re very excited,” said Sixt Leasing Ireland’s managing director Conor Kelly about the plans of expansion.

He said the Irish leasing market is currently consolidating after tougher years which, for example, saw Lombard axe more than 100 jobs in country in late 2009.

“This is a clear opportunity for us,” he said.

He added that since Sixt is both a leasing and rental company, and provides lease options from one day up to five years, it appeals to more types of customers than traditional leasing companies through offering short-term leasing and rental opportunities.

Kelly also told Leasing Life about one of Sixt’s new services, Photo 2 Lease, through which customers can take a photo of a car with any Smartphone, send the picture to Sixt and receive an offer on a lease in one hour.
