Tech firm IBM is to create hundreds of new roles having opened a new global services integration Hub in Mulhuddart, Dublin.
The investment is supported by government agency IDA Ireland, whose chief executive Barry O’Leary says the company will be taking on “several hundred service professionals”, although IBM could not be contacted to ask for further details.
Richard Bruton, minister for jobs, enterprise and innovation, said that “developing and deepening the impact of major foreign companies” in the country is key to its Action Plan for Jobs, announced earlier this year, as well as “targeting sectors such as technology where we have developed major strengths over recent decades”.
IBM in Ireland currently employs over 3,000 people and also has operations elsewhere in Dublin, and in Cork and Galway. Worldwide, it has around 433,000 employees.
