Carelon Global Solutions announces 100 new jobs



Carelon Global Solutions has announced a further 100 jobs at its Irish R&D hub.

The posts will bring total number of employees at the US healthcare services company to 310 by the end of the year, three years after the launch of its IDA supported Innovation Centre at the National Technology Park in Limerick.

Recruitment on the latest round of expansion has already commenced, with positions available across a range of areas including Product Management, Data Analysis, Data Science, and Data Engineering.

“We launched in Ireland in late 2021 seeking to tap into the rich R&D ecosystem here to help solve the challenges to achieving full and complete care, and our Irish operations are contributing very positively to this aim,” said Chief Operating Officer, Rajat Puri.

“We’ve steadily grown our presence and activities here and today is a statement of our intent to continue to grow our exceptional talent pool in Ireland,” he added.

Carelon Global Solutions Ireland Chief Country Executive John Shaw said, “We’re immensely proud of what we have achieved here. We set out here with an intention to assemble in Ireland a diverse and talented team of health tech innovators to help shape the future of connected healthcare and that’s what our team is doing on a day-to-day basis.”

Mr Shaw said that the company is committed to not alone building a team with cutting edge skills but one that reflects diversity and inclusiveness.

To that end, over 60% of the team is ‘new Irish’, drawn from 32 nations, with a 48% to 52% female to male gender split and a target of achieving gender equality by year end.

“We believe diversity is very strongly connected to innovation and it is very heartening for us that we have been able to achieve the mix we have. It sets us up very well for the future.”

Welcoming the announcement in Limerick, Minister of State at the Department of Enterprise, Trade and Employment Neale Richmond said, “Carelon is further evidence of the rich R&D skills pool available in Ireland. As a government, our focus is very much on creating an environment across Ireland that supports investment and growth and Carelon’s success here is proof of that.”

CEO of IDA Ireland Michael Lohan said the announcement of 100 new jobs further solidifies Ireland’s position as a hub for healthcare solutions.

“Carelon’s commitment to growth not only bolsters the local economy but also highlights the attractiveness of Ireland as a destination for top talent and investment in the healthcare sector,” he added.
