Twenty professional positions are being created at global messaging services and e-commerce solutions provider EasyLink’s European Shared Service Centre to be established in Clonakilty, Co Cork.
Supported by IDA Ireland, the new operation will include its finance and accounting team along with the existing team of 25 customer support staff who formerly worked for Premiere.
In 2010, EasyLink acquired the messaging services from Premiere Global Services and as a result of this transaction the company now has over 30,000 customers on five continents.
“Easylink’s location in Cork will boost employment in the region while further adding to the reputation of Cork as a leading location for global services operations,” said Sean Sherlock TD, Minister for Research and Innovation.
Mark Herold, EasyLink’s vice president of human resources said EasyLink’s goal was to become the global leader in business messaging and transaction services providing businesses with the ability to bridge the most challenging technology gaps while creating significant cost efficiencies across organisations.
“The establishment of these operations in Cork is as a result of access to a highly skilled workforce and a strong reputation for hosting business service operations,” he said.
