BANKING group Capita plans to double its head count in Dublin with the addition of 800 new jobs.

The company is opening a new office in the capital, which will help grow its workforce to 1,600.

"The scale and ambition of the company's investment in Ireland, and the announcement of their plans to employ 800 more people over the next three years, is a major vote of confidence in Ireland," he said. "This announcement highlights the progress that is being made in restoring confidence and attracting investment and jobs into Ireland."

Capita provides a wide range of services to clients across both the public and private sectors in Ireland, including: centralised office services, asset management, loan administration and asset recovery, share registration and fund administration, as well as life cover and pensions.

Robbie Hughes, Capita's country manager, said: "We have grown consistently in Ireland in recent years and, as stability is restored to Ireland's financial position and its international reputation, we believe there is opportunity for continued business growth on both a domestic and international front."
