Three Ireland to expand Limerick customer service centre and hire 30

15 Jan 2019

Three Ireland is set to expand its Limerick customer service centre and hire 30 people, bringing the company’s headcount in the Munster county to 500.

Irish telecommunications giant Three Ireland has revealed that it intends to recruit 30 at its customer service centre in Limerick. It is looking for enthusiastic and experienced telesales professionals to fill full-time, permanent roles with the firm.

The new roles will bring Three Ireland’s total Limerick headcount to 500. Speaking about the announcement, Ashley Cook, customer relations director with Three, said: “These new roles present a great opportunity for candidates to join [Three Ireland] and become part of a dynamic and growing team.”

Cook praised Three on the long tenure of many of its staff, some of whom have been with the company for as long as 20 years. He cites the positive work environment created by “learning and development opportunities, a genuine focus on wellbeing, and a competitive salary and benefits package” as a primary factor.

Cook added: “Three is a leading mobile communications provider in the Irish marketplace, with data at the centre of everything we do. We carry approximately 60pc of all mobile data on our network – that’s more than all other operators combined.”

Also on hand to revel in the news was Deirdre Ryan, CEO of Limerick Chamber. Ryan said: “I want to congratulate Three Ireland on its announcement today. We recently announced Three as the region’s best employer, and these jobs further demonstrate Three’s commitment to Limerick and its employees here.

“Today’s announcement marks the start of what I know will be an exciting year for Limerick as we continue to work with our members throughout the county.”

Interested parties are urged to visit the Three Ireland careers page for more information. The firm has said it will be accepting applications for these roles until 28 January.

Three Ireland is not the only firm to announce new roles this week, as life sciences company Eurofins confirmed plans to hire 150 in Dublin as part of a large-scale tech investment.
