HP recruits engineering specialists for cloud services centre in Galway
Up to 50 more high end roles created to support HP’s global focus on cloud and connectivity
13th April 2011
HP, the world’s largest technology company, today announced that it is adding a further 50 high-tech, graduate to senior engineering jobs in its global IT organisation.
These jobs, which are supported by government through IDA Ireland, are effective immediately, and come on the back of the 105 positions HP announced for the same facility in December 2010. The additional investment in Ballybrit, Galway, is as a direct result of HP’s successful recruitment drive to fill the majority of the job openings announced just four months ago.
HP is looking to recruit recent engineering graduates, senior engineers, business analysts and data architects. The roles provide an opportunity to work on a large complex corporate engineering programme.
Martin Murphy, Managing Director HP Ireland said: “Our ability to fill these roles in Ireland is testament to our strength as a company to fill positions for highly skilled individuals. HP in Galway is one of the key centres of worldwide cloud development and these new people will join a team that is developing technology that will play a major part of HP’s future.”
The Minister for Enterprise, Jobs and Innovation, Richard Bruton, TD, described the further expansion of HP in Galway as an important boost for the economy and for graduates in Ireland.
"HP's success in locating key technology functions in Ireland has meant more high end jobs for Irish graduates. The further expansion of this programme is good news for Ireland and a welcome vote of confidence in our economy by the world's largest technology company.
“This is exactly the type of investment that I intend to champion through my Department and its agencies, and I will fight to ensure that jobs such as these are created and protected. I am developing plans to ensure that innovative companies like HP have all the support they need to thrive in Ireland, and to ensure that more jobs like these can be created and filled in both Irish and foreign-owned companies. This will involve reducing costs for businesses, improving access to finance, and prioritising innovation of the type that HP exemplifies. I will be unveiling further details of my plans in coming weeks,” said Minister Bruton.
The HP recruitment drive will commence immediately. More information on jobs is available by contacting HP on galwayjobs@HP.com.
