Indian tech firm to take on 250 Irish staff
Indian technology outsourcing and consulting firm Infosys announced yesterday that it intends to create 250 new Irish jobs over the next three years.
The roles will be spread out across two new facilities that Infosys will set up. One is a product-centric research and development centre where 95 of the roles will be located while the remaining jobs will be at an IT services centre. The project is backed by IDA Ireland.
The new posts are in addition to more than 250 employees who work for Infosys in Ireland. This includes employees transferred from AIB to the Infosys Booterstown facility after an announcement made in July, and employees working onsite at client locations in Ireland.
Infosys CEO and managing director Vishal Sikka, said: "Infosys is already working with clients in Ireland helping them explore new ways of working and advancing. With an ecosystem of like-minded partners in Ireland, we will pursue new ideas and new ways to solve the greatest challenges of our times".
Business group Ibec said the move strengthens Ireland's position as a "global tech hub".
