CORK COMPANY SOUTHWESTERN is to announce the creation of over 250 jobs today.

The outsourcing company will make the “significant” jobs announcement when it officially opens new offices at East Gate, Little Island, on the outskirts of Cork city today.

Simon Coveney, the Minister for Agriculture, Marine and Food, will join the Chief Executive of SouthWestern Jim Costello for the official opening of the company’s latest new office.

The jobs

SouthWestern said that 100 posts will be filled immediately with an additional 160 jobs coming on stream over the next two years.

It is a fully Irish-owned company which has offices in Dublin and overseas in Lodz, Poland and Milton Keynes, UK. The new jobs will bring its workforce up to 1,100.

Minister Coveney said SouthWestern’s expansion was a hugely positive development not just for the company but for the Cork region as a whole.

SouthWestern’s clients include: Bord Gáis Energy, the Private Residential Tenancies Board, Independent News & Media, the Department of Agriculture as well as several other local government and public sector organisations.

Southwestern’s Chairman Neil O’Leary said the increasing demand for business services in Ireland and internationally was good news for SouthWestern, the outsourcing sector and the Cork region.

The Chief Executive of SouthWestern, Jim Costello said: “We need more capacity, more flexibility and to extend our pool of talent. Our new employees and our new modern offices here in Little Island will address all three elements.”

We will be looking to recruit sales, administration, account management and multi-lingualpersonnel from the local area in the coming weeks and months.

The company is based in Clonakilty and was set up in 1957.
