Great news on the job front as tech giant creates 450 jobs in Dublin
Fancy a career in cloud computing? This could be right up your street.
450 sales jobs will be created at the offices of technology giant Oracle in Dublin in what is a major expansion of the company’s business in Europe.
The job announcement was made at the Oracle offices in the East Point Business Park in Dublin yesterday, with Dublin getting the largest share of 1,400 jobs to be created in Oracle’s bases in Europe, the Middle East and Africa (EMEA).
According to the Irish Times, Oracle, who provide cloud computing solutions, will increase their Irish workforce to approximately 1,850 people as a result of the creation of the new jobs and the announcement was hailed by Taoiseach Enda Kenny as one of the biggest jobs announcements in Ireland in a long time.
“It’s a big day for the country. It’s a big statement of confidence in us by Oracle,” said Kenny, who was in attendance at the Oracle offices when the announcement was made yesterday.
Previous experience in cloud computing could be an advantage for prospective employees but it is not a necessity according to Dermot O’Kelly, senior vice president for Oracle UK and Ireland, who said that they wanted to hire “bright, enthusiastic people”, for whom training will be provided.
