Accenture and Citrix on hiring spree

200 new jobs to be created in Dublin and Newcastle.


Accenture is looking to hire 150 IT professionals for its Newcastle Delivery Centre by the end of August next year.

The consultancy firm, which builds IT systems for companies worldwide, is seeking staff with all levels of application development skills in digital technologies and Java programming to develop and manage IT applications for clients.

The move comes after the company hired 20 people at the same location as part of its UK technology apprenticeship scheme.

Bob Paton, managing director at Accenture’s Delivery Centre in Newcastle, said: "There is a wealth of technology talent here in the North East, and we’re pleased to offer the opportunity to develop careers with Accenture.

"We are looking for highly motivated individuals with digital and programming skills who share our passion for serving clients. IT professionals who join our team will have access to the latest technology and will receive training and professional development opportunities to expand their business, industry and technical skills."

Meanwhile, Citrix is looking to increase its Dublin workforce by 50 new staff by the end of 2014, bringing its total Irish workforce up to 265 people.

The new jobs will include roles in sales, IT shared services and technical support.
