An Taoiseach Enda Kenny recently announced the creation of 50 new jobs at the multilingual, IT global services company, Westbourne IT Global Services, in Cork. Widely recognised as one of the leading providers of secure, remote, IT support for global users, Westbourne IT Global Services is actively recruiting multilingual, technical positions that will see its workforce more than double to close to 100 employees within the next 18 months. The job creation is being supported by the Department of Jobs, Enterprise and Innovation through Enterprise Ireland.
Westbourne IT Global Services is an indigenous company which operates from two facilities in Cork. The company provides secure, remote, IT support to Global users 24/7, 365 days a year. This support varies from software installations to major incidents, all ably dealt with by the company’s Networks, Server/Storage and Infrastructure Software teams. Founded in 1994 as an IT product reseller, Westbourne IT global services has evolved and grown to become a global IT support services organisation working with a wide spectrum of multi-national and indigenous clients across the life sciences, pharmaceutical and related sectors.
Speaking at the expansion announcement, CEO John O’Sullivan said: “Today is a very significant day for Westbourne IT Global Services. When I set up this company 20 years ago, I had a team of three people. We are now one of Ireland’s leading providers of 24/7, multi-lingual IT support, operating in seven languages to over 25 indigenous and global organisations. Today, I am delighted to announce that we are actively recruiting for 50 new positions for a variety of technical positions in five different languages. Our new team members will join a rapidly expanding team of talented professionals. We have ambitious plans for continued growth over the next five years and plan to expand our workforce to 350 employees by 2019.”
Speaking about the announcement, Julie Sinnamon, CEO, Enterprise Ireland said, “The creation of 50 new jobs at Westbourne IT Global Services is a great boost for Cork.
