Technology outsourcing player Stream Global Services is to create 50 new permanent jobs plus a further 200 seasonal positions at its technical support operations in Swords and Santry, Co Dublin.
The jobs are being driven by one of Stream’s global clients, a leading name in video-gaming systems. The news is all the more interesting as it coincides with the impending launch of Sony’s PlayStation 4 and Microsoft’s Xbox One.
Many of the new positions are the result of expanded business with the company’s gaming client, coupled with a number of seasonal roles for the latter part of 2013.
“We are looking for talented, motivated people who are looking for a great place to work and the opportunity to gain new skills while supporting an exciting product. We want our people to discover and reach their potential with our company,” said Tom Brennan, country manager for Stream in Ireland.
“Stream provides a supportive work environment where people care about each other and the clients they represent. We are excited about the new positions in Dublin as we continue to expand our presence in the area and create meaningful career opportunities for people.”
The company will host an open house at its Santry location to make it easier for people to explore career opportunities with the company. The open house will be held from 11am to 3pm on Saturday, 28 September, at Stream Global Services, Woodford Business Park, Santry, Dublin 17.
“Business process outsourcing is a sector targeted as part of the Government’s Action Plan for Jobs, and in the past year we have seen an increase of 3,000 jobs per month across the private sector,” said the Minister for Jobs, Enterprise and Innovation Richard Bruton, TD.
IDA Ireland chief executive Barry O’Leary said that in recent years, Ireland has been winning business from across the world in the shared services sector.
“Today’s announcement that Stream is growing its Irish workforce with the addition of 50 permanent staff further adds to Ireland’s existing portfolio of companies within the shared services sector. Stream is a multinational company with a presence in over 22 countries – it employs 37,000 people,” O’Leary added.
