How's this for a Monday morning... Ireland's getting 200+ new jobs

Eishtec has created more than 1,000 positions in the south-east over the past four years.

THERE ARE SET to be 200 jobs created in Clonmel, Co Tipperary over the next six months.

Eishtec, the Waterford-based customer service solution provider, will be creating the positions for workers who will be providing support to UK-based customers.

Recruitment for the positions will start immediately.

The company has been in operation since 2011 and has grown from having just 9 staff to employing 1,300 across sites in Waterford, Wexford and Craigavon.

RTÉ is reporting that an additional 76 jobs are set to be created with Bluefin Payment Systems, a US-based payment processing company, and CipherTechs, an information security service provider.

The new jobs created by Eishtec will be based in Clonmel in Co Tipperary.

Speaking about the launch today, Minister for Jobs, Enterprise and Innovation, Richard Bruton applauded the company for bringing employment to the south-east, an area that has traditionally suffered from economic deprivation.

“Today’s announcement  that it is establishing a third operation in the south-east, and bringing 200 jobs to Clonmel, a town with historical employment challenges, is another massive boost for the region,” he said.

Speaking about the new jobs, co-founding director of the company, Colm Tracey, said, “Our company mission is to challenge the standards of service and our employees are trained to the highest standards to do just that.

At Eishtec we have a particular approach to providing customer service that delivers a performance and experience that our clients value, and their customers appreciate. Our Clonmel-based operation will be a continuation of that value driven business model.
