Abtran and Pepper Ireland expansion plans to create 150 jobs
Some 150 jobs are to be created with the expansion of two companies in Dublin and Shannon.
Customer services provider Abtran said it will take on an extra 100 staff at its operations in the International Financial Services Centre (IFSC) in the capital.
The Irish-owned firm is expanding its consulting and technology services in anticipation of growing its business further internationally.
Abtran chief executive Michael Fitzgerald said it would also be a great opportunity for its employees to grow and develop their careers within the firm.
"Our consulting and technology services are about adding value to our clients whilst giving our employees an opportunity to apply their knowledge in a practical, hands-on way," he said.
Abtran, which was set up in 1997, already employs more than 2,000 people in Ireland, with 50 staff based at its IFSC offices.
Separately, mortgage provider Pepper Ireland said it is looking to recruit 50 people in Dublin and Shannon.
It is looking for graduates and professionals with experience in commercial mortgages and real estate.
