Up to 50 new Jobs for Waterford with Sun Life Financial
Tanaiste and Minister for Social Protection Joan Burton cut the ribbon on Sun Life Financial’s newly expanded offices in Waterford today, announcing that the expansion will allow the company potential growth capacity from its present workforce of 350 up to 400.
“Our team in Waterford plays an integral role in our continued success at Sun Life. With graduates from nearby institutions like WIT and UCC, we have been able to hire exceptional people. We want them to have a facility that is worthy of their talent and expertise.”
Sun Life’s Senior Vice President for Client & Technology Services, David Healy
“The expansion represents a substantial investment by Sun Life Financial in Waterford and is a real vote of confidence in its workforce”
“It clearly demonstrates the importance for companies of having access to a strong pool of graduates. It also strengthens Waterford and the South East’s position as an excellent location for financial services companies to set up. I wish the company every success for the future.”
Martin Shanahan, CEO, IDA Ireland
Sun Life opened its Waterford office in 1998 with a team of 12 people. The company sought to capitalize on the talented workforce available from graduates of WIT, UCC and other third level institutions. The 4,500 sq. ft. expansion and upgrade represents a significant investment by Sun Life in Waterford that, as well as supporting future growth, also recognises the valuable contribution of the team there by providing a state-of-the-art office environment.
