Neopost today announced the creation of 100 jobs and an investment of €15 million in a new European Operations Centre in Citywest, Dublin. The jobs were announced at the official opening of the new facility—to be known as NeoCentre.
The new NeoCentre will help manage 300,000 active customers in 13 European countries, including Ireland. The company employs over 6,000 people worldwide and has two existing businesses in Ireland, Neopost Ireland Ltd and Neopost Finance Ireland Ltd, dealing with customers and leasing respectively, with combined employee numbers of 59.
Over the next two years, Neopost will recruit people with expertise in management, finance, IT, telesales and administration. Multilingual candidates will also be welcomed, and while many of the roles will be aimed at English speakers, candidates with French, Italian and German are also sought.
These jobs are being created as a result of increasing numbers of customers choosing Neopost to help them transition from physical documents to digital communications.
Neopost is also announcing a new joint venture with French mail services company, Esker, to establish Irish-based Neotouch Cloud Solutions Ltd. This business will help customers across Europe transition from traditional mail services to a digital alternative. Neotouch Cloud Solutions Ltd will roll out services to Ireland next year.
Clem Garvey, Chief Operating Officer Europe, APAC, Export, Neopost, says: “Dublin will be a very important site for us in our global operations and this announcement is a sign of our belief in Ireland as a great place to do business and to find some of the best talent in Europe.
“Neopost’s European operations are expanding and changing constantly and we require a skilled workforce to support those activities. With a multilingual and highly adaptable workforce, Ireland is abundant with talent – it’s little wonder it is on track to be Europe’s fastest-growing economy for the second year in a row. On top of that, with its ease of doing business and impressive track record in shared services centres, Ireland is the ideal location for our European Operations Centre.
“Neopost is leading the charge to innovate and deliver solutions that help customers manage the transition from the physical to the digital document. Now, it’s up to the individual how they would like to receive their correspondence from businesses and Neopost is making the complex process of managing that really simple.”
The investment is supported by the Department of Jobs, Enterprise and Innovation through IDA Ireland and will bring Neopost’s total employees in Ireland to almost 160.
