Technology giant IBM Ireland has announced a new investment that will create up to 800 high-tech jobs across Ireland,

They said they will help build advanced software underpinned by the latest Artificial Intelligence technologies to advance security, automation and hybrid cloud.

The AI technology will include foundational and large language models that are key for generative AI.

The investment will create hundreds of roles in research and development, as well as digital sales and consulting; and see Ireland continue to be among IBM’s strategic locations globally.

The roles will be created across IBM sites in Dublin, Cork and at IBM’s subsidiary, Red Hat, located in Waterford.

The new staff will join IBM’s and Red Hat’s vibrant and diverse workforce, and help enhance Ireland’s rich and highly skilled technology talent pool that supports employment in knowledge-intensive and high-technology sectors.

IBM has been in Ireland for more than 65 years during which time it has continually evolved its operations and capabilities to support the company’s global strategy.

Their operations in Ireland help clients across sectors such as financial services and healthcare streamline their business processes, increase productivity and gain competitive advantage through technology. Ireland is also host to IBM Research’s only facility in the EU.

The three-year investment is supported by the Government of Ireland through IDA Ireland.

Speaking of the announcement, Taoiseach Simon Harris said, “I very much welcome IBM’s announcement which not only reinforces the company’s deep-rooted commitment to Ireland as a strategic location but is also set to deliver a real impact to the Irish economy through job creation and by strengthening specialist skills and expertise.

“Furthermore, this news demonstrates Ireland’s continued attractiveness as a preferred location for global companies to build out their digitalisation, research and innovation capabilities.”
