By Brendan Grehan
CITYWEST got a jobs boost last week with the announcement of 100 jobs from French company Neopost.
Neopost and Minister for Business and Employment Ged Nash announced the creation of 100 jobs and an investment of €15 million in a new European Operations Centre in Citywest.
The jobs were announced at the official opening of the new facility – to be known as NeoCentre – in the presence of Minister Nash.
The investment is supported by the Department of Jobs, Enterprise and Innovation through IDA Ireland and will bring Neopost’s total employees in Ireland to almost 160.
Over the next two years, Neopost will recruit people with expertise in management, finance, IT, telesales and administration. Multilingual candidates will also be welcomed, and while many of the roles will be aimed at English speakers, candidates with French, Italian and German are also sought.
As part of its commitment to Ireland, Neopost has also announced a new joint venture with French mail services company, Esker, to establish Irish-based Neotouch Cloud Solutions Ltd.
This business will help customers across Europe transition from traditional mail services to a digital alternative. Neotouch Cloud Solutions Ltd will roll out services to Ireland next year.
Clem Garvey, Chief Operating Officer Europe, APAC, Export, Neopost, told The Echo: “Dublin will be a very important site for us in our global operations and this announcement is a sign of our belief in Ireland as a great place to do business in.”
Minister for Business and Employment, Ged Nash said: “I am delighted to be here to open the new European Operations Centre for Neopost and to announce a major expansion of the company with 100 new jobs.
These are highly skilled jobs across a range of disciplines and are welcome news for Dublin and the wider region. Neopost is a dynamic company that is unafraid to innovate and adapt – and to help its clients evolve in a digital age. I wish Clem and his team continued success in their new centre of operations.”
Commenting on the investment, Martin Shanahan, CEO, IDA Ireland said: “Ireland is a great place to locate a European operations centre.
Neopost has recognised the strength of the talent pool available here attracting skilled English-speaking and multilingual expertise to grow their business activities at the NeoCentre.”
