UP TO 230 jobs are being created by alarm company PhoneWatch as it expands its operations across Ireland.
Recruitment is already under way for roles in engineering, sales and operations by the home security monitor firm.
The new investment will see PhoneWatch expand its footprint nationally, opening offices in Dublin, Cork and up to 10 other regional centres.
Jobs Minister Richard Bruton said the new posts to be created regionally in the coming years is a boost to the Action Plan for jobs.
“We have seen significant progress on this in the past year with jobs now growing in every region of the country,” he said.
“I congratulate PhoneWatch and Sector Alarm Corporation on this new investment”.
PhoneWatch, which was part of eircom, employs 150 people in Ireland. It acquired by Norwegian company Sector Alarm Corporation last year.
Eoin Dunne, managing director, said its monitored alarm systems are installed in more than 100,000 homes and businesses around the country.
“We have exciting and ambitious plans for growth in the Irish market and this new investment will help us realise that ambition,” he added.
