Sky’s new Irish base opens for business
Earlier today (18 June), An Taoiseach Enda Kenny TD joined Jeremy Darroch, chief executive of Sky, to officially open the company’s new operations centre at Burlington Plaza on Burlington Road. The move represents part of Sky’s commitment to invest in its Irish business, including the recruitment drive which is currently underway for 800 roles at its Customer Contact Centre.
Jeremy Darroch, Sky’s chief executive, comments: “The launch of our new site in Dublin marks a very significant day for Sky’s Irish business. Ireland has been a great market for Sky. We’ve been here from the very start, growing to become the most popular provider of TV in the country. For the first time, we will have a dedicated presence on-the-ground to support this growth.
“Our increased commitment to Ireland will create new jobs and strengthen the Sky business. But most of all, it will be good for Irish customers, bringing them more choice and competition. We are excited about our future here.”
An Taoiseach Enda Kenny TD remarks: “The television, information and communication services provided by companies like Sky have transformed how we learn, communicate and share information. It is an industry always on the move, working on the next innovation and expanding their reach across the world…That’s why Ireland is a great location for digital-content providers and for companies looking to source highly-educated, highly-motivated workers.”
