LIMERICK is set to get 100 new jobs with the announcement that US healthcare services provider Carelon Global Solutions is to expand.

The company, based in the National Technology Park in Castletroy, announced on Monday that will add 100 new jobs to its Research and Development (R&D) hub.

This will bring the total number of staff employed by Carelon at the end of the year to 320, three years after the company launched in Limerick.

Recruitment for the new roles has already begun, with jobs available in the areas of product management, data analysis, data science, data engineering, cybersecurity, quality engineering, and architecture, among others.

Chief Operating Officer at Carelon and President at Carelon Global Solutions Rajat Puri said: “We launched in Ireland in late 2021 seeking to tap into the rich R&D ecosystem here to help solve the challenges to achieving full and complete care, and our Irish operations are contributing very positively to this aim.”

“We’ve steadily grown our presence and activities here and today is a statement of our intent to continue to grow our exceptional talent pool in Ireland.”

Chief Country Executive John Shaw added: “We’re immensely proud of what we have achieved here. We set out here with an intention to assemble in Ireland a diverse and talented team of health tech innovators to help shape the future of connected healthcare and that’s what our team is doing on a day-to-day basis.  We’ve been guided by our company’s ‘Think Limitless’ ethos and have built an organisation that values its people as they push the limits of what is possible in healthcare technology.”

IDA Ireland CEO Michael Lohan said that Carelon’s announcement further cements Ireland as a leader in healthcare solutions.

“I am delighted to see Carelon expanding its presence in Ireland, where its innovative research and development efforts in Limerick continue to flourish,” Mr Lohan said.

“This announcement of 100 new jobs further solidifies Ireland’s position as a hub for healthcare solutions. Carelon’s commitment to growth not only bolsters the local economy but also highlights the attractiveness of Ireland as a destination for top talent and investment in the healthcare sector. We look forward to continuing our strong partnership with Carelon.”
