US games giant ZeniMax Online Studios is to create up to 250 short-term positions at its Galway base, it has been announced.

ZeniMax Online Studios first arrived in Galway with the opening of a customer support centre in Rahoon Business Park in 2012, with the creation of 200 jobs at the former CWS National Linen Premises, which was converted to a two-level technology office support centre.

At the time, ZeniMax Online Studios stated that it expected the new facility to “result in the creation of hundreds of jobs over the next several years”.

Based in Maryland on the East Coast of the United States, ZeniMax Online Studios is a subsidiary of billion-dollar multimedia giant ZeniMax Media. The company is the creator of a series of popular games including The Elder Scrolls series. The new positions will support the launch of The Elder Scrolls Online, their first Massive Multiplayer Online (MMO) game

Human Resources firm, Kelly Services yesterday announced that it had been tasked with recruiting an extra 250 employees for ZeniMax Online Studio's Galway operation.

Prospective candidates will be required to identify, troubleshoot and resolve issues raised by players via in-game chat and email.

Zenimax is looking for 70 French linguists and 30 German language experts for these roles, as well as up to 150 native English speakers in a variety of customer support positions.

According to Kelly Services “understanding the game is an important part of delivering service excellence to ZeniMax customers, so it would be an advantage if potential candidates have a passion for gaming”.

“Having already recruited over 180 people on behalf of ZeniMax, we are now working hard to recruit a further 200 plus additional candidates for these customer service roles,” commented Jason Palmer of Kelly Services.

However, a spokesperson for ZeniMax Online Studios Galway confirmed that the positions were short-term contracts.
