PhoneWatch office in Kilkenny creates 15 jobs

21 Jul 2014

PhoneWatch begins its expansion across Ireland with the opening of an office in Kilkenny – its first base outside of Dublin.

The home security company announced in April its plans to build an office network throughout the country, including Cork and up to 10 other regional centres, and to create 230 jobs in the process.

This expansion will begin with a new office in Kilkenny and 15 jobs.

Overall, newly created positions at PhoneWatch will span engineering, sales and operations, though the roles in Kilkenny will be heavily focused on sales, the Irish Examiner reports.

Kilkenny has been selected to serve as a hub for the south-east region, serving households not only in the county but surrounding areas also.

PhoneWatch had previously been owned by Eircom. Last year, Norwegian firm Sector Alarm Corporation, the second-largest home security company in Europe, acquired PhoneWatch.
