Two hundred jobs will be created by Vodafone as part of a €60 million investment in a new European sales centre.

The centre, dubbed ‘Vodafone Red Edge’, will be located in Carrickmines, Dublin and will provide specialist sales capability to support business customers in Ireland, the Netherlands and the United Kingdom.

The company said Ireland was chosen as a location for the new facility because of the number of highly skilled graduates in the country.

This new venture will bring to 2,000 the number of people employed by Vodafone in Ireland.

Taoiseach Enda Kenny said this significant investment in the new sales centre was a major “vote of confidence in Ireland’s economy.”

“The Government is working hard to rebuild a sustainable enterprise led economy, which is a prerequisite to full employment.”

“The jobs-led recovery is founded on economic and political stability, and we are determined to maintain this progress into the future,” he said.

The investment is supported by the Department of Jobs, Enterprise and Innovation through IDA Ireland.

Anne O’Leary, CEO of Vodafone Ireland, said the investment demonstrates the company’s long-term commitment to Ireland and will bring the latest in innovation including advanced sales tools and data analytics to determine customer needs and attitudes.
