New software centre creates 80 jobs
Eighty jobs are to be created at a new IT software business, the Government has announced.
HCL Technologies, a global technology company, is to establish a centre in Dublin, taking on new staff over the next three years.
Jobs Minister Richard Bruton said he met HCL as part of a trade mission to India.
"The real economic success story of Ireland in the mid/late 1990s was based in part on tapping into the global IT boom going on at that time," he said.
"If we are to get out of the crisis we're in and create the jobs we so badly need, a key part of that will be to build on our established strengths and once again now take advantage of the rapid growth in the global IT industry - particularly coming from countries like India and China."
HCL's new software delivery centre will service a growing number of company clients and prospects in the financial services, insurance and healthcare and pharmaceutical industries.
