IRELAND: Technology company, VCE, have announced plans to create 150 new jobs in Cork over the next two years.
Jobs Minister, Richard Bruton today announced that the innovative technology company plans to create up to 150 new research and development (R&D) positions at its international headquarters in Ballincollig near Cork City.
The two-year initiative will create employment opportunities for software engineers and developers, quality assurance (QA) engineers and other R&D support roles.

"I know how dynamic and innovative VCE is from our meetings on recent missions to the United States. Today’s announcement that they are making significant investments and creating 150 jobs is great news for Cork and for Ireland,” the minister said.
"I wish them every success and look forward to working with them on future projects,” he added.
Mr Bruton said that cloud computing was a sector which the Government had targeted as part of their action plan for jobs, and that significant progress had been seen in the sector over the last couple of years.
