IFDS in Ireland job push

Ireland mapInternational Financial Data Services (IFDS), which provides outsourced administration and technology support, is recruiting for 75 jobs in Dublin.

IFDS, a part of custody bank State Street, says due to a “healthy pipeline of new business across insurance, pensions, asset management and the wider financial services industries”, it is creating career opportunities in numerous fields. These include application support, business analysis, change management, technology development, project management and support, quality assurance, and fund and policy administration.

Richard Bruton, Ireland’s minister for jobs, made the announcement this week, and said international financial services is a key sector within the government’s Action Plan for Jobs.

This news comes as IFDS celebrates its twentieth year in Europe. Since inception, the business has grown from two to 200 clients, the firm says, and IFDS now employs more than 550 people in the country. This is a rise from 125 in 2007.

IFDS’s overall staffing levels in Europe have risen from 1,600 to over 5,000 in the past ten years.
