CO TIPPERARY, Ireland - DMS Governance, a global governance, risk and compliance company is to substantially boost its presence in Ireland.
The company on Monday announced it would be taking its workforce in the country to 200.
DMS also announced the creation of an additional 50 new roles in Cashel following the acquisition of Aviation Corporate Services in June last year, and this is in addition to its previous announcement of 50 newly-created jobs at the time of acquisition.
The 50 newly-created roles are for highly-skilled financial service professionals and qualified accountants and positions are to be filled immediately.
"I am delighted to be here today with the DMS Governance team to celebrate the opening of its new office and to announce that another 50 highly-skilled financial service positions will be coming to Cashel, Minister for Business Enterprise and Innovation Heather Humphreys said at the opening ceremony of the new offices on Monday.
Minister of State with responsibility for Insurance and Financial Services Michael D'Arcy added: "The IFS2020 strategy is committed to delivering 30% of International Financial services jobs outside Dublin and this investment highlights the talent available throughout Ireland."
Derek Delaney, Chief Operating Officer at DMS said: "When DMS initially acquired Aviation Corporate Servicesin Cashel, we were extremely impressed with the quality and experience of their existing team and had anticipated recruiting up to 80 further staff members locally. Since that time, we are pleased to report on the high-calibre and quantity of local candidates, and now colleagues, that we have recruited.
As a result of this significant growth, our assurance in this new DMS location has been validated and we are now placing several global centres of excellence in the new Cashel office."
CEO of IDA Ireland Martin Shanahan welcomed the announcement saying:
"DMS Governance's ability to scale its operation in just over a year with plans to grow further is a great endorsement of not only the local management, but also the availability of talent in the region. Central to IDA Ireland's strategy is balanced regional spread of investment and encouraging client companies to look at developing a second site outside of Dublin is central to this. I wish DMS continued success and the ongoing support of IDA Ireland."
