Ticket marketplace, Viagogo, is creating the new positions over the next three years.
The company, which has just opened its new state-of-the-art Operations Centre in the city, says the new jobs will double their workforce to 200.
Jobs Minister Richard Bruton launched the company’s new facility in Limerick this morning.
We opened in a temporary location in Limerick last year and were overwhelmed by the level of local talent and the support from organisations such as the IDA. We already employ a hundred people in Limerick and, now that our new purpose-built Operations Centre is ready, we plan to hire at least a hundred more over the next three years.
Oliver Wheeler, Global Head of Communication for the Viagogo Group
