AROUND 250 NEW jobs are to be created at a Wexford call centre, it has been announced this morning.

Eishtec, an Irish company set up in 2011 and based in Waterford, is to create the jobs at a new custom-built facility in Drinagh in Wexford over the next ten months as part of a major expansion.

The company provides outsourced contact centres for businesses and currently employes 400 people in Waterford.

Minister for Jobs Richard Bruton described Eishtec as a great role model for the Irish economy.

“This is an Irish company founded by three former employees of a multinational, winning business in a highly competitive market and growing employment in a part of the country which has suffered from high levels of unemployment,” he said.

Eishtec recently secured an expansion to an existing contract with EE, the company which recently launched the UK’s first 4G network, and will be expanding its support for Orange and T-Mobile customers.

Heather Reynolds, co-founder of Eishtec, said the expansaion was ‘testament to the skills and positive attitude of the people we’ve recruited’. The company was set up in May 2011 with just nine employees.

Recruitment for the new positions is currently underway.
