250 financial service jobs for the southeast

A financial services company is creating 250 jobs in the southeast.

It is due to the Carne Group almost doubling its current workforce.

The global company was founded in 2004 and has Irish bases in Dublin and Kilkenny.

Yvonne Connolly, the company's Irish chief executive, says the new jobs will be in Kilkenny and in a new base in Wexford.

"We're announcing 50 new jobs in a new financial services centre that we're opening in Wexford," said Ms Connolly.

"We are starting recruiting for those jobs straight away.

"We already have an operation in Kilkenny that we established about 18 months ago. We have 50 people there already.

"The balance of the recruitment in the region will be done by 2021. So within three years."

The Group CEO of Carne, John Donohoe, said: "The demand for our next generation technology and risk driven asset management solutions continues to drive rapid growth across the entire Group.

"The expansion of our Kilkenny financial services centre and the opening of our new financial services centre in Wexford reflects this.

"Our ambition is to support our asset management clients to revolutionise their businesses and our experience is that regions such as Kilkenny and Wexford have a rich pool of talent that can help us achieve this."

Minister of State for Financial Services, Michael D’Arcy, added that he was "delighted to support" the company in their announcement.

"The expansion is great for Wexford and shows Carne Group’s investment in the region and its talented workforce."
