IBM to create 'several hundred' jobs in Dublin

Jobs Ministers Richard Bruton has linked the announcement to his recent investment drive in the US.

GLOBAL GIANT IBM is to create “several hundred” jobs in Dublin, the Taoiseach and Jobs Minister announced this morning.

The IT firm is to open a new Global Services Integration Hub in Mulhuddart, Dublin 15.

The new positions will be in a range of areas as the centre will provide support for IBM’s computer hardware equipment, software and cloud computing businesses. It will begin recruitment in the sales and research and development divisions.

IBM Ireland currently employs 3,000 people across its Irish locations in Blanchardstown, Cork and Galway.

In a statement this morning, IDA Ireland noted that Bruton had met with senior IBM executives on a recent trip to the US.

Enda Kenny said the news was “most welcome” in Ireland, particularly because it follows “a significant number of FDI announcements in recent months from world-leading multinational companies”.

Globally, IBM Corporation employs 433,000 people and had revenues of $106.9 billion last year.
