SKY is weighing up the addition of 100 new jobs in coming months at its Dublin operations centre, according to senior executives in the company.

The company, which uses its Dublin operations centre for customer support, set up its facility in 2012 with the aim of employing 800 people over two years. But executives say that the company now employs over 890 people, with a further 20 people to be hired next month.

The company also says that there is "potential for further expansion" in staff numbers "in the near future", with a figure of 1,000 believed to be in consideration.

Sky does not release subscriber figures for its Irish operations. However, it is believed to have over 600,000 television subscribers here. It launched its broadband services here last year.
