By Brian Hutton

Telecoms giant Vodafone is to create 200 jobs with the opening of a new European sales centre in Dublin.

The €60m (£43m) expansion at Carrickmines in the south of Dublin involves specialist sales teams targeting business users in Ireland, the UK and the Netherlands.

Anne O'Leary, chief executive of Vodafone Ireland, said the decision to locate there copper-fastens the company's commitment to doing business in Ireland.

"The selection by Vodafone of Ireland as a location for this European sales centre also demonstrates Ireland's standing in Europe in terms of availability of highly skilled people for these emerging and developing roles," she said.

"In addition, the centre will bring the latest in innovation including advanced sales tools and data analytics to determine customer needs and attitudes."
