- Decision by OpenText to create 105 new high-skilled roles in Cork is further evidence that economic recovery is strengthening.
- OpenText’s new operation will provide customer support for its information management services.
Today’s announcement that OpenText, a global leader in its sector, is creating 105 extra jobs in Cork is a great vote of confidence in the city and county as a world-class placed to do business. This Government’s relentless focus on job creation is paying off, with 70,000 new jobs created since we launched our Action Plan for Jobs in 2012.
I wish OpenText every success in Cork. I have no doubt they will be highly impressed with the calibre of candidates for these roles. It is great to see that Cork has developed into a location that attracts leading technology companies. It now has a critical mass of tech companies which has in turn ensured that a strong talent pool of highly skilled employees is available for these employers.
These are high-quality jobs. OpenText plans to recruit Technical Analysts with supporting language skills and senior management roles. Recruitment is underway immediately and job listings can be found on OpenText’s career page: http://opentextats.avature.net/careers/SearchJobs
OpenText is partnering with the Department of Jobs, Enterprise and Innovation, IDA, on this customer support centre and both are to be commended on their success in continuing to attract investment to Ireland.
This announcement continues a trend that has seen employment increase and the unemployment rate continue to fall. Over the last 12 months employment has increased by 31,600. The unemployment rate has decreased to 11.1% from a peak of 15.1%. These are much needed improvements and today’s announcement of a further 105 jobs will again help to reduce the number of people who find themselves searching for work.
