The investment will see the company establish a network of regional office hubs to attract the best talent in Ireland.
Global technology, engineering and consulting service provider Expleo is to create 200 jobs with the opening of its first regional hub in Mahon, Co. Cork, with subsequent hubs in Limerick and Galway to follow.
The company is investing €10m in the expansion of its workforce, along with the establishment of a network of regional hubs as part of the investment.
“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”
The majority of the 200 jobs will be highly skilled IT roles in disciplines including software development, DevOps, software engineering and technical engineering.
The new hires will work on transformative technologies and projects such as hyper automation, robotic process automation (RPA) and agile transformation in industries including life sciences, financial services and aviation.
Expleo regional hubs
To support the recruitment process, and to ensure that it attracts the best talent from across Ireland, Expleo will establish a series of regional hubs that will be complementary to the company’s Irish HQ in Dublin and its base in Belfast. The first office in Mahon, Co. Cork, is now open, with subsequent hubs planned for Galway and Limerick.
Team members based in the hubs will be offered the same flexible working arrangements as those in the Dublin and Belfast offices, allowing them to split their time between working from home and working from Expleo’s hub offices or client sites.
Regular team collaboration days, meanwhile, will ensure that all new hires will feel included and part of the core Expleo team.
Expleo has been operating in Ireland for over 20 years.
Working with enterprise clients to fast-track value-driving innovation, futureproof their businesses and innovate consistently at scale, the company has seen a 25% growth in Irish revenues over the last two years, spurred by widespread digitalisation across all industries.
To facilitate this, and further growth, the company will grow from 800 to 1,000 employees in Ireland over the next two years.
“We’re thrilled to announce our expansion plans as Expleo continues to go from strength to strength on the island of Ireland,” said Phil Codd, managing director of Expleo.
“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.
“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. We’re also looking forward to expanding our national footprint further with new hubs in Galway and Limerick also expected to open this year.”
