Technology firm Sage to create 300 jobs in Sandyford
A world leading technology company is to create 300 jobs.
Sage, the second largest business in its field in Europe, is to set up a new base in Sandyford with new positions in sales, marketing and services providing support for its products for small business accounting, payments and payroll solutions.
The company already has a Dublin operation with 250 employees.
The expansion is backed by IDA Ireland with Taoiseach Enda Kenny saying it was a huge boost to the national mission of securing and embedding the recovery.
"Not only will this create 300 new jobs for the local area, it will also reinforce Dublin's position as one of the leading technology hubs in the world," he said.
"This positive announcement builds on this week's Budget where we have prioritised changes to support work and enterprise so that we can keep the recovery going and see its benefits spread to more households."
Sage has 1.8 million customers in Europe, is listed on the FTSE 100 and has 14,000 employees in 24 countries.
