Debt management firm to create 50 new Irish jobs
CERTUS – the company set up to manage Bank of Scotland loans in Ireland – is to create 50 new jobs in Ireland.
It currently employs more than 800 staff.
Most of the new posts will be based at Dublin’s St Stephen's Green.
The jobs are mainly in retail debt management and collection, but there are also roles in commercial banking and operations.
Certus provides debt management and recovery services to financial organisations, and is looking to expand its customer base.
According to Joe Higgins, Certus's CEO: "The opportunity for Certus to broaden its customer base grows as financial institutions in Ireland reduce their balance sheets and comply with new regulation on how they deal with customers in debt, particularly consumers."
