Bank of Ireland has announced 100 technology jobs which will be focussed on the development of its digital banking services.

The bank is looking to fill a variety of roles including technical architects, software developers, engineers, specialised project managers and data analysts.

It follows the recruitment of 130 similar tech roles in 2021.

The company said this latest recruitment drive will support its ongoing enhancement of digital services across personal, business and corporate banking, as well as the bank's wealth and insurance business.

The jobs will be filled in line with Bank of Ireland's flexible working policy, meaning applicants can be based anywhere on the island of Ireland, working from a combination of home and central office locations with access to a network of remote working hubs.

"We have many colleagues with deep technology expertise and these new positions will add to this.

"We are ambitious for the development of our digital services and we offer a very progressive approach to flexible working," said Eimear Harty, Bank of Ireland's HR Director for Group Technology & Customer Solutions.

In December, Bank of Ireland was fined €24.5m by the Central Bank for regulatory breaches related to its IT systems and related internal controls.

The regulator found that Bank of Ireland failed to have a robust framework in place to ensure continuity of service for it and its customers in the event of a significant IT disruption.

The bank acknowledged the breaches and apologised saying it had invested heavily in IT in order to address the problems.
