eBECS, a DXC Technology company, has announced that it will invest in the creation of 100 new tech jobs in Ireland.
eBECS first established operations in Ireland in 2016 serving its clients across the UK and Ireland. eBECS specialises in delivering Microsoft business applications and has announced the expansion of their presence in Ireland with an additional 100 jobs.
Flexibility to work from home/anywhere within Ireland
These jobs are spread across Microsoft Certified Professionals (MCPs) and is aimed at graduates and return-to-work programme applicants. eBECS Ireland offers the flexibility for their employees to work from home/anywhere within Ireland. Its returnship programme reaches out to those who perhaps have significant business skills, but have been unemployed for at least 18 months, so gives them a chance to re-enter the market.
The investment is supported by the government through IDA Ireland. Minister for Business, Enterprise & Innovation, Heather Humphreys TD said: “I am delighted to see the creation of 100 highly skilled new jobs by eBECS.
“Its unique business model, whereby the staff can work from home, means staff can be based anywhere in the country. This is a really exciting, innovative, company which is paving the way for more flexible and family friendly forms of working and I wish them well for the future.
James Finnegan, eBECS Ireland country manager, said: “eBECS has been excited by the capabilities of our existing staff in Ireland and the digital transformation that it has provided to our customers. We are now looking to accelerate the hiring of additional talent from Ireland. We feel the ability for our staff to work from home, or anywhere within Ireland provides staff with a unique work/life balance.”
Innovative remote working business model
Sam Dharmasiri, eBECS sales director said: “Ireland is a significant market for eBECS, so I am delighted that eBECS has decided to further expand operations here, with the creation of an additional 100 jobs. I really appreciate the support of the IDA, and I look forward to eBECS’s continued success in both the UK and in Ireland.”
CEO of IDA Ireland Martin Shanahan said: “Increasingly some of the world’s best-known brands are moving towards the innovative remote working business model.
“The announcement by eBECS represents a fantastic opportunity for individuals to work from home in regional locations and enjoy a better work/life balance. eBECS will have unrestricted access to talent across the breadth of the country and I wish them every success as they embark on this new chapter of their business expansion.”http://www.engineersjournal.ie/2018/06/13/ebecs-create-100-jobs-ireland/http://www.engineersjournal.ie/wp-content/uploads/2018/06/a-ebecs-1024x683.jpghttp://www.engineersjournal.ie/wp-content/uploads/2018/06/a-ebecs-300x300.jpgNewsIDA Ireland,jobs,Microsoft
