60 New Jobs Announced With One Of Ireland's 'Most Innovative High-Tech Companies'

Sixty new jobs are to be created in Cork by one of Ireland's most innovative high-tech companies, Newsweaver.

The company will expand it's workforce from 80 to 140 over the next two years, with a concentration on high-value jobs in research and development at its Cork HQ.

The expansion is supported by the Department of Jobs, Enterprise and Innovation through Enterprise Ireland.

Announcing the new jobs, Minister for Jobs, Enterprise and Innovation Richard Bruton said: "At the heart of our jobs plan is growing a powerful engine of Irish enterprise. Newsweaver is a great example of the type of company we are trying to support – a dynamic Irish company, which started in Cork only 13 years ago, providing solutions to problems faced by some of the world's biggest companies, selling its services all around the world, engaging in R&D here and creating high-end jobs in Cork. I wish Andrew and the team every success as they continue to grow this great business."

Newsweaver Chief Executive Andrew O'Shaughnessy, who set up the company in Cork in 2002, said the expansion was about building on the company's success to date and pushing the boundaries for customers.

"Internal communications – or employee communications – are important for any company, but for a large multi-national with tens of thousands of employees operating across several time zones in different continents, it is critically important and a very complex challenge, which is where the unique technology solutions we have developed come into play," he said.

"It's exciting to see the impact that our product is having on the world's leading companies," he said. "R&D is the cornerstone of our strategy and I'm really delighted that our growth to becoming the global leader in Internal Communications has been driven, and will continue to be driven, by pioneering R&D and new product development coming out of Cork."
