23 Sep 2015

A raft of support roles have been announced in Dublin as Future Finance and Equilume plan to expand their operations.

Student lender Future Finance is creating 50 positions, with sales, marketing, customer support and product development jobs created to more than double its 48-strong workforce.

After launching in the UK last year, expanding into Europe is the reason behind the latest jobs drive, with 50 roles to be filled over the next two years.

“The plans for Future Finance’s Dublin HQ will further strengthen Ireland’s finance and technology cluster and also complements IDA’s strategy of winning investments in this space,” said Martin Shanahan, CEO of IDA Ireland.

“We look forward to working with the company as it scales its global business from Ireland.”

Meanwhile Equilume, the equine technology start-up that spun out of UCD, has hired two people to bring its workforce to nine.

The equine technology company wants to accelerate sales of the Equilume Light Mask in the lucrative US Thoroughbred and Quarter Horse market.
