THE MINISTER FOR Jobs has been out and about with good news ahead of Ireland’s charm offensive on the world next Tuesday.

This morning, Richard Bruton was on hand to help a US firm announce 70 new jobs for Dublin.

Extolling the virtues of the data analytics sector, the Minister said it was a boost that LexisNexis had decided to set up shop in the capital.

“I am determined to ensure that, with the right policies, we can see continued jobs growth in this area,” he added.

The sentiment was echoed by Martin Shanahan, chief executive of IDA Ireland, which has supported the investment.

“We believe that Ireland has huge potential here,” he said, adding that having LexisNexis in Dublin “will strengthen Ireland’s brand as a place where businesses can find talent to match their needs”.

LexisNexis Risk Solutions helps insurance providers to predict and manage risk. It says this allows those firms to write more profitable business, lower claims exposure and reduce fraud, while still enhancing the customer experience.

The new roles will be created over the next three years as the firm establishes a data analytics centre to “support its UK and Ireland insurance operations”.

The existing Irish office was formed as a result of the company’s acquisition of Mapflow, a Dublin-based geographic risk assessment technology company, in September 2013.
