Novartis, the world’s second-largest pharmaceutical company, has made the final decision on where to locate its new regional business services centre, bringing this and 100 jobs to Elm Park Business Campus, Dublin.
The multinational company first announced plans for the new centre in April. While the perfect location was sought, the operation has been running out of Beech Hill Office Campus, also in Dublin.
The official regional business services centre in Elm Park will be operational by November 2013 and Novartis still expects the move will establish 100 jobs for Dublin, and possibly more. “We are still in the early stages of planning. We anticipate that we are on track to hire approximately 100 associates by the end of this year,” the company said in a statement to Siliconrepublic.com. “We would expect to see an increase in jobs with the expansion of the centre in the future.”
The centre will be run by Global Business Services, an organisation within Novartis Pharmaceuticals that delivers shared business services activities through service centres. Staff at the Dublin site will provide services such as digital marketing, training and medical writing.
Elm Park was selected for the comprehensive services available here and its transport infrastructure. It is Novartis’ fourth location to open in Ireland, joining two manufacturing and development facilities in Cork and its commercial operations in Dublin.
