Ireland’s Taoiseach Enda Kenny is set to announce that IT company Xanadu Consultancy is hiring 120 new staff at its Blackpool base in Cork.
Xanadu Consultancy, an Irish company, provides software development, operational support and consultancy services, predominantly to companies in the online gaming sector, but with an ever-growing remit.
These services include research and development of new software, as well as ongoing maintenance and upgrading of current software and hardware systems. Only established in 2011, the company has been expanding ever since.
The recruitment drive has already begun, with more than half of the 120 new jobs to be filled in the next few months in the areas of marketing, programming and data analytics.
“Xanadu is a great example of an Irish company that has grown its business to become an international market leader. I am delighted to welcome the creation of 120 new jobs at the company in its Cork HQ. These highly skilled jobs will provide great opportunities for ICT graduates and tech sector workers,” said Kenny .
“The Government's plan is all about securing economic recovery and successful Irish companies like Xanadu expanding to create new jobs are making a significant contribution to that aim,” he added.
“To meet the growing demand for our services, we have had to scale up our teams significantly. Our continued expansion is a reflection of our absolute focus, international customer wins, invaluable client feedback and increasing market demand,” Mark Brosnan, CEO of Xanadu, said.
