120 new jobs are being created at Virgin Media’s National Customer Experience Centre at Roxboro in Limerick bringing staff numbers to 400. In a further major boost to the local economy, Virgin Media is also expanding its superfast fibre broadband network for homes and businesses in the region.
Virgin Media is growing its Irish workforce to meet demand for its superfast broadband, TV, phone and mobile services. The jobs are being created directly and together with partner Sitel with all new positions based in Virgin's high-tech Customer Experience Centre in Roxboro.
The new positions are being filled immediately and are all full time including customer care specialists handling billing and sales plus a number of specialist back office finance roles. Virgin Media have also confirmed they will expand their network footprint in the mid-west region with a plan to connect 10,000 more homes and businesses to their superfast broadband network when the upgrade is completed.
Finance Minister Michael Noonan said:
This is a very welcome development for Limerick and it underpins the city's track record as a hub that can deliver strong results for high tech multinational companies like Virgin Media. Today’s announcement follows a succession of quality job announcements for Limerick and further demonstrates the city’s proven track record in attracting companies of this nature. Virgin Media has consistently been one of the biggest employers in Limerick and I commend them for this jobs decision and their continuing investments in the Mid-West.
