Welcome jobs boost for Dublin
There will be a welcome jobs boost for Dublin later this morning as Symantec announces the creation of a new European Customer Management Centre.
Internet security company Symantec is to create the 400 jobs in Dublin with the establishment of a new European Customer Management Centre alongside its existing facility in Blanchardstown. The new centre will provide a Europe wide sales and support function to Symantec’s customers and partners.
Two hundred new jobs are expected this year with a further 200 coming before the end of 2014.
The company says it will be seeking highly-skilled multilingual staff to take on the roles.
Symantec has been in Blanchardstown for 22 years, and the base which employs just over 600 people, is already home to a security operations centre, as well as operations in business authentication, software development and testing.
The new project is supported by the IDA.
“Symantec is part of a thriving cluster of world leading security software companies operating in Ireland”
