Expleo, a global technology, engineering and consulting service provider, has announced 200 new jobs and the opening of its first regional hub in Mahon in Co Cork.
The company is investing €10m in the expansion of its workforce from 800 to 1,000 over the next two years.
The majority of the 200 jobs will be highly skilled IT roles in disciplines including software development, software engineering and technical engineering.
As part of its investment, Expleo is also establishing a network of regional hubs that will be complementary to its Irish headquarters in Dublin and its base in Belfast.
The Cork hub is now open with plans underway for similar facilities in Galway and Limerick.
Staff based in the hubs will be offered the same flexible working arrangements as those in the company's Dublin and Belfast offices.
"Following extensive research of available resources and skills throughout the country, it was evident that regional hubs would provide Expleo with the additional talent and impetus we need to deliver on our ambitious growth plans," said Phil Codd, Managing Director, Expleo Ireland.
"Our new hires in Cork will have access to all the benefits our current employee base enjoys including competitive salaries, flexible working, world-class training programmes and a highly supportive working culture," he added.
