Global IT Services giant Tata Consultancy Services has unveiled major expansion plans in Ireland, a move which is set to create 80+ new, highly skilled jobs across the country.
With over 324,000 employees in 46 countries, TCS is one of the ten largest IT consulting, systems integration and IT services firms of the globe. The India headquartered company last year generated a profit of $3.5 billion, on the back of $15.5 billion in revenues. TCS established an office in Dublin in 2001 and today operates with over 100 consultants in Ireland supported by the company’s Global Delivery Centres. Key areas of business focus in Ireland include education, supply chain, enterprise solutions, digital technologies and IT portfolio optimisation.
In order to capitalise on growing market opportunities, as well as the firm’s mounting standing and track record in Ireland and Europe in general, TCS’s leadership have stipulated a growth trajectory for TCS Ireland. In the coming 12 months, the Irish division expects to nearly double in size, with a target of roughly 80 new professionals set by Venkatesh Priyadarshi, Head Operations and Business Development at TCS Ireland. “As the Irish economy has accelerated over the last number of months, we are seeing a pronounced increase in demand for the digital and business solutions we provide and expect to grow our business over the next twelve months,” comments Venkatesh.
Recruitment has already started for both graduates as well as experienced hires, says Venkatesh, with roles spanning a wide range of industries including banking, utilities, food, technology and telecommunications. From a functional perspective, the positions available concentrate around the fields of project management, data science, business intelligence and technology.
“All positions are currently open for recruitment and TCS are keen to hear from applicants. We look forward to growing the business even further with these new positions,” concludes Venkatesh.
Across the UK, TCS has over 10,000 people operating from 30 locations, including Edinburgh, Ipswich, Leeds, Liverpool, London, Manchester, Norwich, Peterborough, Redhill and Swindon.
