There was some very welcome news on the jobs front for Dublin and Cork yesterday, as Minister Bruton (Minister for Jobs, Enterprise and Innovation) announced the creation of 167 new jobs. Dublin will see 80 jobs created while Cork will benefit from 87 new highly skilled jobs.
The new jobs from 6 companies are to be spread across a range of sectors including ICT, medical technology, financial services and digital media. The companies making the announcements are:
“Part of the Government’s plan for jobs and growth is ensuring that we attract more fast-growing start-ups and emerging companies to locate in Ireland, so that they establish deep roots here from early in their growth and make a substantial impact on our economy. There is also of course the possibility that one of these companies will turn into a world-leading company of the future. Both Enterprise Ireland and IDA have key roles to play in this, and last year we established a joint EI/IDA management team to target more jobs from these areas.”
Richard Bruton TD (Minister for Jobs, Enterprise and Innovation)
The investments are supported by the Department of Jobs, Enterprise and Innovation through IDA Ireland. In recent years, IDA Ireland has broadened and deepened its portfolio embracing not just large multinational corporations (MNCs), but also working closely with fast growth companies, who aspire to be the MNCs of the future. This focus is part of the Government’s Action Plan for Jobs and IDA’s strategy Horizon 2020. The announcements represent the results of this focus.
“Ireland’s reputation as a location for fast-growing business continues to go from strength to strength. These 6 companies announcing investments and job creation in Ireland today have come to Ireland in order to take advantage of our wealth of talent, track record as a location for FDI, technology capabilities and attractive rate of corporate tax”.
Barry O’Leary (CEO, IDA Ireland)
CareerWise Recruitment was delighted to hear the announcement from Minister Bruton yesterday. The fact that the job creation and investments are spread across numerous sectors is another indication that Ireland is fast becoming a key location for FDI.
“The level of activity for technology based indigenous and inward investment start-ups is very encouraging to see in the Irish market.”
“The onus is on the third level institutions to now develop relevant re-training courses and to produce technology graduates to fill these new open roles”.
Ken Murphy (Director CareerWise Recruitment)
The announcement of 87 new highly-skilled jobs spread across three different companies in the Cork region was welcomed today by Conor Healy (Cork Chamber Chief Executive).
Whitehouse Analytical Labs has made a decision to select Carragaline for its new analytical testing facility. This is part of its first phase of international expansion results in 35 new highly-skilled jobs while IMSTech Gmbh, a provider of manufacturing solutions for the life sciences sector creates a further 35 new research jobs at its Kinsale centre. The establishment of an EMEA customer support base by Loop1 Systems Inc. results in a welcome further 17 new jobs for the region.
“The decision by three international companies to select Cork as their base to develop and expand their operations provides further compelling evidence of the region’s capacity to attract investment from fast-growing international companies. Today’s announcement substantiates once again the key strengths and resources that the Cork region has to offer and clearly positions Cork as a location of choice for industry requiring high skills levels and an enabling and facilitative business environment. It is a significant and welcome boost for the Cork region and clearly demonstrates the region’s commitment to attract and grow new business opportunities into 2013.”
