UPC Ireland has announced further jobs growth at its Limerick base with the addition of 12 new vacancies for highly skilled information technology professionals.
The news follows the company’s announcement last week that 30 new jobs are to be created in the city.
Finance Minister Michael Noonan and Henry Minogue, vice-president and chief information officer of UPC Ireland said the jobs were “knowledge intensive and mark a direct new investment by UPC in Ireland as it establishes a new European Competency Centre in Limerick”.
The centre is tasked with developing advanced new software and systems to support all of the various processes involved in large scale customer service operations.
It will provide these systems and processes to UPC in Ireland and other European countries.
The new full time positions include roles for IT managers, technical support leads and IT designers.
Minister Noonan said: “I want to congratulate UPC today, this is great news for Limerick, the Mid West region and for Ireland in general.
“I think we’re at the start of another industrial revolution in Ireland where modern technologies including broadband, cloud computing and social media are growing exponentially.”
