OpenText creating more than 100 Cork jobs
A Canadian technology company is expanding its global customer support centre in Cork, with plans to create up to 105 jobs over the next two years.
Currently ranked as one of the top technology companies in Canada, OpenText has been supported by the Department of Jobs, Enterprise and Innovation through IDA Ireland in making the investment.
OpenText will recruit technical analysts and senior management roles.
Minister for European affairs and data protection Dara Murphy said: "Not only does the expansion of OpenText's Global Customer Support Centre create more jobs, it is an endorsement of Cork's attractiveness for investment by one of the world's leading technology companies.
"Partnerships between industry, the government and IDA Ireland, such as is the case with OpenText, demonstrate that these relationships deliver significant long-term benefits for areas like Cork, the economy, the companies themselves and their customers."
OpenText senior vice president of worldwide customer service James McGourlay added: "Cork met all of our requirements for expanding our business in the region: a strong talent pool, a growing technology ecosystem and supportive public partnership.
"OpenText is committed to being a trusted partner to our customers, and having a local support centre in Cork will bring significant benefits to our European customers as they embrace a Digital-First World."
The Cork operation is one of OpenText's three global customer support centres.
