Global payment company Omnipay is to create 30 jobs at its headquarters in Clonskeagh, Minister for Jobs, Enterprise and Innovation, Richard Bruton announced at the company’s premises last week.
The number of staff now working at the Clonskeagh HQ is 165, so the latest positions will bring that number up to almost 200.
Over the next six months, a variety of highly-skilled technology, customer and professional services roles will be created.  These include business analysts, quality assurance specialists, project managers and systems developers.
The new jobs are part of a plan to expand the company’s international business. The company already completes over a billion transactions for 31 merchant banks mainly, in North America and Europe and intends to increase this client base substantially over the next couple of years, particularly in Asia Pacific, Latin America, Africa and India.
Minister Bruton said: “International financial services is a sector targeted under the Government’s Action Plan for Jobs, and we believe that with the correct supports we can drive the creation of 10,000 additional jobs by 2016.
“Today’s announcement that OmniPay, an innovative company in this sector, is creating an additional 30 jobs in Ireland adds to a growing list of positive financial services announcements in recent months. I am determined to ensure that, by putting in place the right supports and through an intensive programme of trade and investment missions, we can build on this and create the jobs we need.”
An Cathaoirleach, Tom Joyce (FG) responded to the news by saying the 2% cut in commercial rates would facilitate the creation of more jobs in Dun Laoghaire Rathdown.
“This is great news for the county.  Any new jobs are always welcome and I hope we’d expect more in the future. The reduced [commercial] rates outlined in the budget will encourage people to expand their existing business in the county or set up new business here.”
OmniPay is owned by US financial services firm First Data, which first invested in the company in 2002.
“This announcement is not only great news for OmniPay, but also for the burgeoning payments industry in Ireland. OmniPay delivers one of the world’s largest single global payments infrastructure, managing more than a billion payments annually,’’ said Hubert O’Donoghue, chief executive and co-founder of OmniPay.
