Cork-based Aspira, the Irish owned enterprise technology project specialist, is to recruit 50 new staff after experiencing growth of 65% over the past year due to a series of new project wins. The announcement was made today as Taoiseach Enda Kenny was on the General Election campaign trail in Cork.
Aspira also announced the acquisition of an IT services and support firm, B-TEC Solutions, which it said will expand its range of products.
The company – whose Cork office is in East Gate, Little Island – works on large-scale technology projects such as building database applications for corporate clients.
The jobs in Cork and Dublin are in project management, business analysis and software development staff and will come on steam over the next 18 months.
Aspira chief executive Pat Lucey said:
“The new roles we are announcing today will strengthen our delivery capability and our management team at a time when we are bolstering our service offerings, and preparing for expansion to international markets. We forecast overall sales to more than double over the next three years, with international sales growing faster again”
