100 jobs for North Dublin with Convergys

US-based customer services management firm Convergys has announced an additional 100 new job at its Dublin contact centre in Swords, in North Dublin.

The company delivers customer service and technical support services to BT broadband and telephone customers in the UK. It also has a site at Woodford Business Park, in Santry, also on Dublin's Northside.

Recruitment for its Irish bases began in December last. Some 150 jobs have already been filled. This additional 100 jobs will bring the company's staff numbers here to 250.

Available positions at both Irish sites include technical support roles. These are currently open for application.

Dublin has been a pivotal hub for Convergys for over 15 years’ and the creation of these new jobs "reaffirms our commitment to the Irish market" said Site Director at Convergys Dublin, Stephen Guerin.

Chief Executive of Fingal County Council, Paul Reid, described the news as another major boost for the county, and for Swords in particular.

Convergys have been based here for over 15 years and have found a skilled workforce in Fingal that matches their requirements and has allowed the company to expand its operations,” said Reid.
