New banking EU operations centre will bring 100 tech jobs to Dublin

12 Apr 2021

Consultancy company Albany Beck is using Dublin to scale its EU business and will be hiring for a range of tech roles over the next three years.

Banking consultancy company Albany Beck is expanding its team in Ireland with the development of a new operations centre in Dublin.

The London-based company will create new roles in the areas of software development, software engineering, cloud services, machine learning, AI, transaction management and more.

Recruitment will begin immediately and a total of 100 new roles will be filled over the next three years. The first roles it is seeking to fill include software developers, full-stack software engineers and Python developers.

‘Ideal location’

Specialising in financial services consultancy, Albany Beck was founded in 2004 and has more than 170 expert consultants. It provides global banking clients with support across technology, risk, data and operations.

The company, which expanded into Ireland in 2018, said the new expansion and operations centre will allow it to provide cutting-edge services to its EU clients following Brexit.

Adam Kelly, head of the EU operations centre at Albany Beck, said Dublin has been “the ideal location” for the company.

“The depth of talent in Ireland, especially in software development and financial services has been the key to our growth. As a Dubliner, I take great pleasure in seeing the city continue to thrive, especially with Albany Beck being a part of it.”

Tánaiste and Minister for Enterprise, Trade and Employment Leo Varadkar, TD, added: “The decision to expand and base its EU operations centre in Ireland is a great vote of confidence in Dublin city and underscores the company’s continued commitment to our country. The 100 new jobs are a real boost.”

Last week, California-headquartered ServiceNow said it also plans to expand its Dublin base as part of an EMEA expansion, adding 300 new jobs to its operation in Ireland. The expansion follows the company’s announcement in July 2020 that it will build a new data centre in Dublin in the wake of Brexit.
