IT solutions company eBECS is creating 100 tech jobs at its Irish base.

The firm, which specialises in delivering Microsoft business applications, first set up in Ireland in 2016.

eBECS is a subsidiary of the US-headquartered DXC Technology and it offers its workers the flexibility to work from home or anywhere within Ireland.

The company's "returnship programme" also reaches out to those who despite having significant business skills, have been unemployed for at least 18 months.

"eBECS has been excited by the capabilities of our existing staff in Ireland and the digital transformation that it has provided to our customers. We feel the ability for our staff to work from home, or anywhere within Ireland provides staff with a unique work/life balance," James Finnegan, eBECS Ireland Country Manager, said.

The new investment is supported by IDA Ireland.

IDA Ireland's chief executive Martin Shanahan said that increasingly some of the world's best-known brands are moving towards the innovative remote working business model.

"Today's announcement represents a fantastic opportunity for individuals to work from home in regional locations and enjoy a better work/life balance," he said.

The Minister for Business, Enterprise & Innovation Heather Humphreys said the company's unique business model means staff can be based anywhere in the country.

"This is a really exciting, innovative, company which is paving the way for more flexible and family friendly forms of working," she added.
