DUBLIN, 8th July, 2015 – An Taoiseach Enda Kenny TD, Richard Bruton TD, Minister for Jobs, Enterprise and Innovation and Alex White TD, Minister for Communications, Marine and Natural Resources, today announced that Vodafone Ireland is to establish a new European sales centre located in Carrickmines in Dublin. Vodafone, Ireland’s leading total communications provider, will invest €60 million in the centre which will result in the creation of 200 permanent jobs. The European sales centre, “Vodafone Red Edge”, will provide specialist sales capability powered by leading-edge technology to support business customers in Ireland, the Netherlands and the United Kingdom.

The announcement was made at an event this morning in Vodafone Ireland’s headquarters at Mountainview in Leopardstown and demonstrates Vodafone’s continued commitment to investing in Ireland. Ireland was chosen, following a thorough evaluation process, for the location of the centre primarily because of the access to a large pool of the country’s highly skilled and talented graduate population. It is supported by the Departments of Jobs, Enterprise and Innovation through IDA Ireland.
