A RESEARCH, MEDIA and technology company is to establish a new base in Dublin city centre, creating 125 jobs.
The jobs are to be in the areas of campaign management, telephone support, data analysis and business intelligence by IDG Connect and will study and analyse global buying behaviour.
The 125 new positions will be created between now and the end of 2013.
Minister for Jobs Richard Bruton said that a key part of the government’s plan for jobs is to deepen and develop the impact of multinational companies already located in Ireland.
IDG Connect recently recruited 60 positions already on Great Strand Street in Dublin 1.
“Since January, we have seen a very strong flow of investments from world-leading companies, and we are determined not only to ensure that this continues but also that these companies can create stronger links here and provide greater benefit to the economy,” said Bruton.
“Today’s announcement that this dynamic company is creating 125 jobs here is great news for Dublin city centre and for Ireland. With the right decisions I am convinced that Ireland can provide greater stability for investors and create the jobs and growth we need”.
The head of IDG Connect, which is the world’s largest technology media company, said that Ireland had a strong mix of core skills, high levels of education, an established infrastructure and multi-lingual labour pool.
