Bruton announces 60 Symantec jobs

Enterprise Minister Richard Bruton today announced that Symantec, a global leader in security, storage and systems management, is to establish a new team within its European Operations Centre in Dublin, creating 60 high quality jobs. The jobs will focus on the areas of customer authentication and verification, technical support and client services. The investment is supported by the Irish Government with the aid of IDA Ireland.

Welcoming the announcement, the Minister said...

A significant part of the real Irish economic miracle in the mid/late 1990s was our ability to t ap into the global ICT boom that was going on at that time. If we are to get growth in employment and in the economy again, one part of that will involve relying on our traditional strengths, and today's announcement is a great vote of confidence in our policies. We must be far-reaching in our ambitions in this area, and I am determined to build on those traditional strengths to ensure that we can reap great rewards from the new global tech boom and get our country working again
