"We said last year that we were betting on Dublin to deliver the talent we need, and that bet has paid off significantly," said Paul O’Dwyer, IT Development Centre Leader.

The credit-monitoring giant also has a separate facility in Wexford where it employs 100 people.  This facitliy was it set up over 20 years ago.

Equifax provides information that enables consumers, businesses and governments to compile and monitor credit scores.

The company's Dublin IT Development Centre develops new and advanced solutions for its global customers.

Equifax expects to fill the new vacancies over the next 12 months. The new jobs announced today will mostly be filled by software engineers, business analysts, and other IT specialists.

"This expansion also demonstrates that Ireland has both the necessary business infrastructure and talent pool to continue to attract global services companies here," Mr Shanahan added.
