Lead generation company Internal Results is to create 20 new jobs at a new Customer Support Centre at its Portlaoise, Co Laois, operation.
The IDA-backed investment will see the jobs come on stream over the next three years.
“A central ambition of our Action Plan for Jobs process is to ensure that all regions of the country benefit from the recovery,” said Richard Bruton, TD, Minister for Jobs, Enterprise and Innovation.
“Today’s announcement is another step in that direction and I wish the company and its workforce every success for the future.”
Internal Results Ireland Limited is a subsidiary of Internal Results Holdings Limited, based in the UK.
The company provides lead generation services to some of the world’s leading technology and telecommunications companies, including Cisco, McAfee, Cognizant, Verint, CNET and 02.
Competitive rates for property
The company moved late last year to new high-spec offices in the Technology Building on the IDA Business & Technology Park in Portlaoise.
The Irish subsidiary was set up in 2011 at the same time the company was established in the UK. Fourteen people are currently employed full time in Internal Results Ireland Limited and 15 others are working part-time.
“To other new and emerging companies I would say, consider Portlaoise, not only is there a strong skills base to tap into but you can benefit from more competitive rates for property outside of Dublin and Cork. Infrastructure, including the roads network, is excellent, too,” said Internal Results’ director of delivery Noel Hooban.
