Infosys BPM, the business process management arm of Infosys (NYSE: INFY), today announced that it is expanding its presence in Ireland, creating 250 jobs locally with the development of a new delivery center in Waterford.
Infosys BPM started its Ireland operations in Dublin in 2014, delivering exceptional service offerings across telecommunications, manufacturing, social media, healthcare, edtech, and fintech sectors. The company has since then, further expanded in Ireland through its offices in Waterford, Wexford, Clonmel, and Craigavon.
The new center in Waterford will provide voice support, customer service and technical support operations for large global enterprises. The new roles will cover several functions across various job levels, spanning a multitude of skills from customer and technical support roles to subject-matter-experts in the areas of finance, HR, planning, and capacity management.
The employees will be working at the cutting edge of innovation in the digital space, consistently providing anytime-anywhere experiences to empower some of the world's largest organizations in navigating their digital transformation journeys. In line with the company's mission to develop the workforce through continuous learning, Infosys will provide critical training and growth opportunities to nurture the next generation of digital talent.
The 250 new roles in Ireland will build on Infosys' recently announced 1,000 jobs in the UK, reinforcing the company's commitment to supporting post-pandemic economic growth in the region.
Leo Varadkar TD, Tánaiste and Minister for Enterprise, Trade and Employment, Ireland, said: "Congratulations to the entire Infosys BPM team, on this impressive expansion which will result in the creation of 250 new jobs in Waterford.
