200 high-skilled jobs for Galway with MetLife

Insurance and financial services company MetLife officially celebrated the opening of its new Global Technology Campus in Galway today.

The company plans to employ approximately 200 skilled IT professionals when at full capacity. Including its existing office in Dublin, MetLife’s presence in Ireland will grow to more than 500 employees once recruitment at the new Global Technology Campus is complete.

The new campus represents a major investment in the digital initiatives that will help MetLife transform its customers’ experience around the globe.

Speaking at the office opening, Michel Khalaf, President of MetLife US and EMEA said, “MetLife’s new Global Technology Campus builds on our significant presence in Ireland which is the hub of our European insurance businesses. Just as we have done in Dublin, we look forward to growing our workforce here in Galway in the coming years and contributing fully to the local community.”

Details of current vacancies and career opportunities with MetLife in Ireland are available here.

An Tánaiste and Minister for Business, Enterprise and Innovation, Frances Fitzgerald TD, said “I am delighted to be here today with MetLife to help launch this wonderful new Global Technology Campus in Galway. This is an extremely exciting project, and the Irish Government is very pleased that our ongoing work in driving competitiveness and providing quality skills is paying dividends in attracting cutting-edge projects like this.  This development will see a further 200 people employed in Ireland and we look forward to our continued fruitful relationship with MetLife in both its Galway and Dublin operations, well into the future.”

CEO of IDA Ireland, Martin Shanahan said: “The opening of this new Global Technology Campus is a significant step for MetLife, represents a substantial investment by the company and demonstrates very clear commitment to Galway and the West Region. MetLife announced last year that it was establishing this campus with the creation of 200 jobs and this state-of-the-art permanent premises will allow them to continue to recruit up to that capacity. It shows too that Galway has both the required skills for global companies such as MetLife to establish and grow here and the property solutions they need. I wish MetLife all future success in Galway.”
