Global outsourcing provider arvato is to create up to 150 highly skilled jobs in its finance division in Ireland over the next three years, with more than 30 vacancies currently available.
These new roles in IT, consulting, finance and accounting, project management and customer service, will support the increased demand for private and public business process outsourcing (BPO) services in Ireland and internationally.
arvato provides BPO services across the full customer life cycle, including credit and collections, merchant services, customer services, finance and accounting and consultancy services for local and international companies.
With a headcount growth rate of 15pc year-on-year, arvato already employs more than 1,200 people in Ireland across its global finance BPO and IT/high-tech services.
Dublin is a strategic centre of knowledge and innovation for arvato Finance, following the formation of the company in 1996, when AOL outsourced its back office operations in Europe.
More than 60m transactions a year
arvato Finance has expanded internationally over the past decade to handle more than 60m transactions worth more than €50bn every year on behalf of its clients. Its footprint now spans the globe with additional operational centres in the UK, India, China, Brazil, the Philippines and the US.
“Our success over the past 15 years comes down to the partnerships we have established; not only with our international clients but also key organisations, such as the IDA and Chambers Ireland. These relationships form an extremely strong foundation for our continued international growth strategy,” said Andrea Kaminski, president, International Finance and arvato Ireland.
arvato Finance is a subsidiary of arvato AG, an internationally networked outsourcing provider with more than 60,000 people employed in more than 270 subsidiaries across 35 countries worldwide.
