Dell to create 100 new positions in Raheen

dellDell has announced that it is creating 100 new Innovation Technology R&D roles at its Limerick Campus in Raheen with recruitment to begin immediately.

Today’s investment builds on an announcement in October which saw 60 Dell Commerce Services roles created at the R&D Centre in Dublin, to drive the transformation of Dell’s online platform.

The announcement was welcomed in Limerick today by Minister for Finance, Michael Noonan TD and Minister of State at the Department of Jobs, Enterprise and Innovation, Ged Nash TD.

In Limerick, to announce the investment, Dell’s Chief Information Officer, Paul J. Walsh said: “We know that the level of technical talent in Ireland is great and we’re excited to tap into it, augmenting the existing talent that we have here already.  Today’s announcement represents a significant milestone in our plan for Ireland to become a central development hub for Dell’s Innovation Technology team.”

The Chief Executive of Limerick City and County Council Conn Murray said the creation of the Innovation Technology R&D roles to support the company’s ongoing technology investment in the region was testament to the highly skilled graduates’ base in Limerick and the region’s growing status as an attractive investment location.

“The announcement of a significant number of new jobs by one of Limerick’s largest employers should serve to inject renewed confidence in other multinational and indigenous, high-tech knowledge-based firms who are considering investing in Ireland or expanding their existing operations,” said Mr. Murray.

“Limerick City and County Council is working closely with the Mid West’s regional development agencies such as Enterprise Ireland and the IDA to promote Limerick and the wider region as a location for investment. The ICT sector in Ireland is continuing to prosper so ever effort should be made to ensure Limerick facilitates any business wishing to expand its existing operations or invest here,” he added.

Dr James Ring, Limerick Chamber CEO, said, “It is encouraging to see an established multinational and significant employer continuing to expand its base of activities while creating new jobs.  Over the years Dell has transformed from a PC manufacturing base to a high end solutions and development hub.  This announcement firmly underpins Dell’s commitment to the region, Limerick’s position as a strategic location for technology companies, and the phenomenal benefits of strong collaboration across industry, education and key stakeholders.”
