LotusWorks is set to create 100 new jobs at its Sligo headquarters over the next 12 months.
The Engineers Ireland CPD accredited employer currently employs almost 500 people and will create 50 new jobs over the next six months – with another 50 to come by the end of 2017.
The announcement was made during a Trade and Investment Mission event in Sligo on Wednesday, which was organised by Enterprise Ireland and IDA Ireland and led by Jobs, Enterprise and Innovation Minister Mary Mitchell O’Connor.
The objective of the trade mission to Athlone, Sligo and Limerick is to maximise sales opportunities for Irish SMEs with multinational companies (MNCs) based in Ireland.
“Data centres, bio-pharmaceutical and advanced technology sectors are poised for substantial growth in coming years and the talent LotusWorks has is perfectly suited to supporting these sectors,” said Tom Cafferkey, COO, LotusWorks.
“In the coming months we will focus efforts on recruiting the best technical and engineering talent available. We’ve great people on teams across the world working with world-leading manufacturers. It’s their hard work that has built LotusWorks reputation as a ‘best-in-class technical and engineering service organisation.”
The company already has a strong presence in Europe and the US and, over the last few months, has also established a presence in Singapore as it gets ready to support existing and new customers in the life sciences, data centres and hi-tech clients sectors in the region.http://www.engineersjournal.ie/2016/05/20/lotusworks-to-create-100-jobs-at-its-sligo-hq/http://www.engineersjournal.ie/wp-content/uploads/2016/05/LotusWorks.jpghttp://www.engineersjournal.ie/wp-content/uploads/2016/05/LotusWorks-300x281.jpgNewsCPD,Enterprise Ireland,jobs,LotusWorks,Sligo
