Spectrum Wellness, a corporate health and wellness provider, is creating 100 new jobs in Dublin.

The roles, which are being created as part of a €4m investment, will be in the areas of account management, marketing, operations, product development and mental health case management.

Spectrum Wellness’ co-founder and managing director, Stephen Costello said that the jobs have been created because of significant business growth in Ireland.

"Turnover is forecast to hit €4m this year, with secured contracts bringing that to €7m by the end of 2019." 

"The investment in jobs is a clear signal about the confidence we have in the future of the company, not only in Ireland but in markets such as the UK, Europe and the US," Mr Costello said.

In announcing the jobs today the privately-owned Irish company said that it is also scaling up its operations and plans a UK market launch next year.

The company then aims to launch in other markets by 2020.

"We are currently looking at a range of funding options that will support our international growth," Mr Costello said.

Spectrum Wellness supports the health and wellness of 175,000 employees across 1,000 companies in Ireland, providing a range of services and programmes covering employee wellness, mental health, corporate gym management and screening.

It is an exclusive health and wellbeing partner to Laya Healthcare.

The announcement was welcomed by Minister for Business, Enterprise and Innovation, Heather Humphreys TD.

"As an Enterprise Ireland client, it’s fantastic to see this young company doing so well, and I wish the team at Spectrum Wellness every success as they continue to grow the company in Ireland, and fulfil their international ambition," Minister Humphreys said.
