Microsoft today announced the expansion of its Dublin based EMEA Inside Sales organisation with the creation of 200 new jobs.
The tech giant announced in February that Dublin had been selected as the location for the new EMEA Inside Sales organisation.
This led to the immediate creation of 500 new jobs, 80% of which have already been filled and with recruitment well advanced for the remaining positions.
Once this second phase of recruitment is complete, it will bring Microsoft’s overall employee numbers in Ireland to 2,000.
Microsoft say they are seeking applications for Technical and Solutions Sales Specialists as well as those with language capabilities. The company is also recruiting individuals with leadership experience to help build the organisation and to support the growing teams.
Speaking at today’s announcement, An Tánaiste and Minister for Business, Enterprise and Innovation, Frances Fitzgerald said:
“I welcome the announcement that Microsoft is adding 200 new roles to the Inside Sales organisation just six months after the investment was first announced.
It demonstrates the opportunities that can be created for Ireland from our existing employers and investors and illustrates that the talent is available in Ireland for these types of jobs and for employers.”
Cathriona Callahan, Managing Director, Microsoft Ireland said:
“The rapid expansion of our EMEA Inside Sales organisation reflects the dynamism and transformation of the company. Microsoft is driving innovation which is delivering business outcomes for customers, and in turn, is creating significant demand for our solutions. With Ireland the home of our EMEA Data Centre, European Development Centre, EMEA Operations Centre, European Development Centre, and EMEA Inside Sales business, we are well positioned to benefit from this growth.
“The continued contribution of the Dublin-based Inside Sales team to the company at a global level ensures that we are in a strong position when we seek to attract further investment to Ireland. With the continued growth of our team and our preparations for a move into our beautiful new state of the art campus building, our fourth decade in Ireland is shaping up to be the best yet.”
