A company which specialises in helping businesses monitor and manage cleaner and more efficient processing solutions is to create 50 new jobs, almost doubling its workforce, with most of the new employees based at its headquarters in Co Cork.

Compliance & Risks, based at the Eastgate Industrial Estate in Little Island and currently employing 56, said the jobs will be created over next three years.

Most of the jobs will be based at its Cork headquarters, across the areas of research, software development, client support, sales, and account management.

The company says it’s now in “an aggressive development phase” and the new jobs will support its growth within the technology, consumer goods, retail, industrial goods, and life sciences sectors.

Joe Skulski, the company’s chief executive, said they had worked hard to establish themselves as a key regulatory service provider which works with many of the world’s top companies.

“As an Irish company, we are delighted to create these 50 jobs which will facilitate our rapid expansion over the coming years. These jobs will strengthen our ability to deliver value, quality and innovation to our clients.”

Company chairman Jim Costello said Cork was its global operations centre and he was looking forward to continuing to build on Compliance & Risks existing talented team.

“It has a great product set and is already successful in its targeted and growing global marketplace.”

Minister for Housing, Planning and Local Government Simon Coveney said he was delighted an indigenous Irish company was creating more jobs.

“This company is a perfect example of what’s great about this country, with their highly skilled legal team, combined with innovative technology creating value for blue chip clients for nearly 15 years.

“By further strengthening its workforce and in particular its global operations centre in Cork, the company is poised to continue its successful growth trajectory.”

The Enterprise Ireland chief executive, Julie Sinnamon, said that her organisation was “proud to be associated with an exciting phase in Compliance & Risks’ development”.
