More than 120 jobs announced for Dundalk
An Tánaiste and Minister for Business, Enterprise and Innovation Frances Fitzgerald TD joined Bill Graebel, CEO of Graebel Companies, to announce the creation of 125 new jobs at Graebel Companies in Dundalk.
The announcement was made at the opening of the company’s Europe Middle East and Africa (EMEA) financial shared services and operations centre in Dundalk.
Recruitment for the positions is already underway and the investment is being supported by the Irish Government through IDA Ireland.
The roles being created will be in the area of general ledger, treasury and compliance, and customer support.
Graebel, which is headquartered in Denver, Colorado, is a provider of workforce and workplace mobility services for Fortune 500 and Global 100 firms in 165 countries.
The Dundalk centre will serve as an additional operations centre in Europe to support Graebel’s EMEA headquarters in Prague, and the growing needs of Graebel’s clients in managing their international talent mobility and relocation programs.
"Our location in Dundalk will allow us to better serve our international clients and their employees’ needs, as we provide our duty of care that is central to our values. We look forward to working with the Irish government and IDA to further grow our business internationally and create jobs in Ireland for many years to come," Mr Graebel said.
Welcoming the announcement Minister Fitzgerald said that a key priority for the Government through the Regional Action Plans for Jobs, is to create jobs in rural Ireland and this significant number would be “transformative” for Dundalk.
While IDA chairman Martin Shanahan said that IDA Ireland had worked closely with the company in recent years to win this investment for Ireland.
"The types of roles being created coupled with strategic value of the centre is in line with IDA’s strategic objective to win high quality investments in regional locations," Mr Shanahan said.
