More than 100 IT jobs in Dublin amid Equifax expansion

26 Jan 2016

IT company Equifax has opened a new talent centre in Dublin, with more than 100 “highly-skilled R&D positions” gradually coming on stream at the Sir John Rogerson’s Quay facility.

Equifax’s new Dublin centre is the second premise in Ireland for the company, with Wexford already home to a hub that houses its database management, customer and consumer activities in relation to its consumer credit referencing services for UK-based clients.

With 90 staff, the Wexford site has been in operation for more than 20 years, but the new centre will more than double the company’s workforce in the country.

Calling the move to Dublin “a big bet”, Equifax’s Paul O’Dwyer has followed suit with many job announcements in Ireland, claiming the “technology talent pool is strong” and the market can support Equifax’s introduction.

“Equifax is a workplace of strong values and one in which we realise our success as a company is ultimately built upon the achievements of our people,” said Coretha Rushing, chief human resource officer at the company.

“We are an inclusive culture, one that offers work-life balance and embraces the innovative spirit.”

The news follows a fine Monday outside of the capital, with Hortonworks bringing 50 positions to Cork, Fortuity topping that up with 10 more and Galway benefiting from an IT merger with 100 roles on the back of newly formed Intuity.
