Coinciding with celebrations of 25 years in Ireland, multinational IT company EMC has announced the opening of a new office in Mahon, Co Cork, as part of a €100m investment, creating 200 jobs.

The new office will be located in the Citygate office development and will open in August 2013.

The highly skilled, full-time positions span IT, sales, finance, engineering, customer support, and research and development. Recruitment has already begun and EMC expects to have the majority of the 200 jobs filled by the end of this year.

The announcement has been made by Taoiseach Enda Kenny, TD, the Minister for Jobs, Enterprise and Innovation Richard Bruton, TD, and EMC president and COO David Goulden at EMC’s Centre of Excellence in Cork this morning.

Minister for Research and Innovation Seán Sherlock, TD, was also at the announcement and was pleased to see R&D positions among those on offer.

“EMC’s partnership with third-level institutions on cloud, big data and data centre transformation research programmes fits perfectly with the Government’s efforts to support effective collaborations between companies and third-level researchers,” he said. “It is about taking the best skills available and using them with the best companies.”

EMC already employs about 3,000 people in Ireland and this expansion in Cork is supported by the Department of Jobs, Enterprise and Innovation through IDA Ireland.
