Fianna Fáil TD for Cork South Central, Micheál Martin, has welcomed the announcement today by EMC that it is to create 200 new jobs in Cork.
Deputy Martin commented: “Today’s announcement of the creation of 200 jobs in Cork by EMC is welcome news and co-insides nicely with the company celebrating 25 years in Cork.
“EMC has been a key employer in Cork since 1988 and the growth of the company in that time is a testament to the confidence it has in the workforce and conditions for expansion in Cork.
“EMC now employs close to 3,000 staff in Cork who are leading the way in the provision of IT solutions. The opening of a new office at City Gate in Mahon is also a vote of confidence in the highly attractive facilities there.
“The ICT sector in Ireland is expanding rapidly and with both UCC and CIT supplying hundreds of high quality graduates every year, there are numerous opportunities for employment in EMC and other IT companies.”
