In an effort to fill open positions at its Galway, Ireland-based facilities, Boston Scientific (NYSE:BSX) is offering to cover relocation costs for expatriated residents that left for positions in Australia, according to a Connacht Tribune report.
The residents left Galway for Australia during the recent recession, according to the report, leaving a shortage of skilled workers in Ireland.
Due to the shortage, the Marlborough, Mass.-based company has begun head hunting in Australia, looking for senior quality and manufacturing engineers and to fill R&D roles, according to the Connacht Tribune.
Boston Scientific is looking to fill approximately 50 positions in the region, and already employs nearly 3,000 individuals in the regions according to the report.
The company is primarily targeting ex-pats who left due to the recession, but is also looking for Europeans in Australia who are looking to return to the area, according to the Connacht Tribune.
Earlier this week, Boston Scientific said that it won CE Mark approval in the European Union for the next iteration of its Watchman anti-stroke heart implant.
