An Irish technology firm is to create 75 jobs over the next year at its new global headquarters in Dublin.

The IT Alliance Group currently employs over 400 people.

Taoiseach Enda Kenny officially opened the company's new 20,000 square foot headquarters.

The Irish company provides IT outsourcing to some leading multi-national companies including IBM, Microsoft, Dell and HP.

The company started as a two-person office in Dublin in 1997.

Last year, the IT Alliance Group branched out into cloud computing with a subsidiary company, Auxilion, which provides 24 hours an day, seven days a week global IT support from Dublin and another premises in Sheffield.

The IT Alliance Group has already started to recruit and is looking to fill positions across the IT spectrum, but also in the fields of account management, project management, digital marketing and business operations.
