The jobs news came during a trade and investment event Taoiseach Enda Kenny attended during his visit to Berlin.

Giving graduates new career paths

Chief executive and founder of Zenith Technologies Brendan O’Regan said Ireland doesn’t get enough credit for the business in conducts abroad and hopes these new positions will contribute further to that business.

“It is important that people understand the business reasons why some of the leading global brands in pharmaceuticals, biopharmaceutical, ICT and healthcare base themselves in Ireland and how comprehensive Irish design, engineering and technology services are in improving efficiency and operations,” O’Regan said.

“That expertise is now being exported worldwide with very positive results for Ireland and for Irish graduates for whom this represents great opportunity and really positive career paths.”

Ireland’s Minister for Jobs, Enterprise and Innovation Richard Bruton said Zenith Technologies is an innovative Irish company that has gotten into the supply chain of top multinational companies, rapidly growing its export sales in growth markets like Germany and creating jobs in Ireland.
