175 tech jobs available at East Point Business Park

7 Apr 2010

Tech multinationals at Dublin’s East Point are on the lookout for 175 candidates for vacant jobs at the docklands office park. The jobs span IT, telecoms, customer service, HR, consultancy and pharmaceuticals.

Five multinationals at East Point – Oracle, Conduit, Citrix, Quintiles and Peninsula – are targeting graduates and experienced professionals for roles in sales, finance and business development, as well as technical support, customer service with languages, and life science graduates for clinical and commercial operations.

Last week, Citrix revealed it is creating 30 new jobs at its EMEA Customer Technical Support headquarters in Dublin. This is in addition to the 20 new jobs announced late last year.

The vast majority of the vacancies are for full-time positions; a small number of part-time, evening and weekend customer service roles are also available.

Jobs fair on 16 April

The companies are holding a jobs fair on 16 April to attract interested candidates.

The East Point Jobs Fair will take place at Estuary House in East Point, Dublin 3, from 10.30am – 2.30pm, with a later session from 5–8pm to facilitate anyone with daytime or existing work commitments.

Representatives from the companies hiring will be available to speak with interested candidates about the roles on offer and how best to apply.

“We are pleased to be in a position to organise a jobs fair at East Point promoting 175 new job opportunities in an office park that already employs some 5,000 people,” said Matt Gallagher of East Point.

“It’s been a difficult 18 months for employers and people out of work, so it’s reassuring to see that some of the companies based here are beginning to recruit again.

“We hope that the jobs fair will enable people to learn about career opportunities and working life at East Point, whilst providing an environment in which they can promote themselves to prospective employers directly,” Gallagher added.
