Cork company Newsweaver creating 60 new jobs

Thursday, December 17, 2015

Cork company Newsweaver is to significantly increase the size of its headquarters in the Airport Business Park adding 60 new jobs over the next two years.

The company will see its workforce grow from 80 to 140, with a concentration on high-value jobs in research and development.

Newsweaver works with some of the world’s largest companies including Rolls-Royce, Vodafone, Kellogg’s and Aon Hewitt. They create products that allow such companies communicate effectively with their thousands of staff members who are often located in different locations in different time zones.

The company is to double the number of developers it employs as it grows its international customer base and expects significant national and international interest in the new positions and has started the recruitment drive.

Newsweaver Chief Executive Andrew O’Shaughnessy, who set up the company in Cork in 2002, said the expansion was about building on the company’s success to date. “Internal communications – or employee communications – are important for any company, but for a large multi-national with tens of thousands of employees operating across several time zones in different continents, it is critically important and a very complex challenge, which is where the unique technology solutions we have developed come into play,” he said.

Announcing the new jobs, Minister for Jobs, Enterprise and Innovation Richard Bruton said: “At the heart of our jobs plan is growing a powerful engine of Irish enterprise. Newsweaver is a great example of the type of company we are trying to support – a dynamic Irish company, which started in Cork only 13 years ago, providing solutions to problems faced by some of the world’s biggest companies, selling its services all around the world, engaging in R&D here and creating high-end jobs in Cork. I wish Andrew and the team every success as they continue to grow this great business”.
