Tata Consultancy Services (TCS), a leading global IT services consulting organisation, is to create over 80 new positions in Ireland.

The roles range from project management, development and data science to business intelligence and analysis.

TCS established its Dublin office in 2001 and now has more than 100 consultants in Ireland.

Key areas of business focus in Ireland include education, supply chain, enterprise solutions, digital technologies and IT portfolio optimisation.

Venkatesh Priyadarshi, head of Ireland operations and business development at TCS, said the company is looking for highly-trained graduates with varying degrees of experience.

"Today we work with more than 100 consultants in the country, and look forward to growing the business even further with these new positions.

"As such, we are looking for highly trained graduates with varying degrees of experience in industry to fill these positions across Ireland."

Mr Priyadarshi hinted at more job creation within the company over the next year thanks to an increase in demand for both digital and business solutions.

"This announcement is focused on the work TCS Ireland do in partnership with clients ranging from medium and large indigenous public and private bodies.

The roles span a wide range of industries including banking, utilities, food, to multinational companies at work in sectors such as technology and telecommunications.

"As the Irish economy has accelerated over the last number of months, we are seeing a pronounced increase in demand for the digital and business solutions we provide and expect to grow our business and the number of open positions we will look to hire even further over the next 12 months," Mr Priyadarshi said.
