Minister for Jobs, Enterprise and Innovation Richard Bruton today announced the creation of 132 new jobs for Dublin and Galway from five North American and European companies. The investments are supported by the Department of Jobs, Enterprise and Innovation through IDA Ireland.

The new jobs are to be spread across a range of sectors including IT, Life Sciences and Financial Services.

Software analytics company New Relic is establishing its EMEA HQ in Dublin, with the creation of 50 new jobs.

Medical technology company SEKO MedTec Solutions is setting up a European Control Centre in Galway with a staff of 30.

NeoMed confirmed it will be locating its EMEA Headquarters in Dublin, employing 22 people.

Consulting and solutions company capSpire will create 20 new jobs in business consultancy and software development.

Lastly, Paris-based internet domain name registry business Starting Dot will create 10 jobs across a range of activities including sales, finance, IT and customer support at a new office in Dublin.

Making the announcement, Minister Bruton said: “Targeting high-growth emerging companies is a key part of the Government’s Action Plan for Jobs. The thinking behind this drive is that these companies will establish deep roots here from early in their growth and make a substantial impact on our economy. There is also of course the possibility that one of these companies will turn into a world-leading company of the future.

“Today’s announcement that five fast-growing young companies, across a range of fast-growing sectors, are locating operations in Dublin and Galway with the creation of 132 jobs is great news for Ireland. We in Government are determined to build on this to ensure that we can continue to see the flow of multinational investment to Ireland and help create the growth and jobs we need.”
