Further to establishing its presence in Dublin over a year ago, business information specialist Dun & Bradstreet (D&B) is to create an additional 75 jobs by 2012, bringing the total in Ireland to 225.
Positions currently being recruited by the company include researchers, software developers, analysts and support staff.
D&B currently employs 150 people in highly skilled roles in Sandyford, Co Dublin. Today’s announcement follows the company’s previous statement in 2010 that said it would create 150 jobs in Dublin by 2011, with the support of Government through IDA Ireland.
A 170-year old company internationally, D&B’s Dublin-based operation serves customers through a range of technology and operations functions. The centre is responsible for the collection and processing of data on subject companies. D&B has in-sourced operations roles from existing off-shore arrangements. Many of these roles have been filled in Dublin.
“D&B’s operation in Ireland has surpassed the company’s expectations and has resulted in more highly skilled roles being created than previously anticipated,” commented Taoiseach Enda Kenny.
“The company’s decision to ramp up its recruitment is very welcome news and is a strong endorsement of Ireland’s reputation as a leading location for the international business information products and services sector.”
Sara Mathews, CEO D&B said it had been very successful in attracting high calibre staff in Dublin and they have been instrumental in its ability to expand our operations here.
