The rebranding of Hibernia Evros to Evros Technology Group today has seen the company announce 100 new jobs in Ireland.

The company provides services to the IT industry and, on the back of new contracts and expansion, it is looking to vastly increase its current employee numbers of 250.

The jobs will be split, half in Dublin and the other half elsewhere in the company, which also has offices in Cork, Waterford and Kildare.

The new jobs will be made up of both technological and administrative roles.

Yet more IT jobs in Ireland

“Technology is a key sector which we have targeted as part of our Action Plan for Jobs, and over recent years we have seen a really impressive performance by both Irish and multinational companies in this area,” Jobs Minister Richard Bruton said in the The Sunday Business Post.

“Today’s announcement that Evros, a really impressive Irish company in this area, is creating 100 extra jobs – half in Dublin and half in its regional offices in Cork, Waterford and Kildare – is a great boost and further evidence of the potential of this sector.”

Making the announcement, Bob Murray, MD of the company, said: “We are delighted to share this news with everyone today. The need to expand our capacity so significantly is testament to the incredible work of our committed team to date, and is also recognition that we are now competing for, and winning, top-tier contracts that require these new resources.

“This is a major step forward for the company towards our goal of being the largest provider of IT managed services and systems integration in Ireland.”
