An Taoiseach Enda Kenny and Minister for Jobs Richard Bruton were in Cork recently to announce the creation of 350 new jobs at Voxpro, Ireland’s largest exporter of multilingual business process outsourcing.
Voxpro is actively recruiting multilingual, technical positions that will see its workforce increase from 500 to 850 by the end of 2014. The newly created positions will support the company’s international growth strategy. International business currently represents more than 80% of the company’s overall turnover. The new job creation is being supported by the Department of Jobs, Enterprise and Innovation through Enterprise Ireland.
Speaking at the expansion announcement, CEO Dan Kiely said “Today is a very significant day for Voxpro. When my wife Linda and I founded the company 15 years ago, we had a team of six people. Today, we are Ireland’s leading exporter of Business Process Outsourcing, operating in 12 languages to over 100 indigenous and global organisations and we continue to expand at a rapid pace. We currently employ 500 people across our five sites. Today’s announcement will see this figure increase by 350 people which puts us on track to over-deliver on our commitment to employ 1,000 people internationally by the end of 2015. As our business expands, we have a very clear focus on attracting international business partners and these new highly skilled, technical roles will support our endeavours to secure global clients and become their growth partner in Europe.”
Voxpro is an Irish award-winning company which operates from three purpose-built facilities in Cork, a newly opened office in Dublin and an international office in San-Francisco. The company delivers customer contact solutions on behalf of more than 100 companies and organisations worldwide including Google, Nest and Travelzoo, in addition to multinational corporations and leading international blue chip companies. Voxpro is best described as the unseen, but critical, link connecting businesses to their clients on a 24-7, 365 days a year basis.
