IT service provider HCS is investing €3.2m in growing the business over the next three years.
HCS, which has a base in Dublin alongside its Waterford HQ, will open a new office in Cork as part of this expansion.
The IT, cybersecurity, and telecom services provider plans to double its workforce with this investment, creating 30 new jobs.
Sales roles will be created in high-growth areas for the business such as cybersecurity, telecoms, business applications, and managed IT services. HCS will also be hiring cybersecurity consultants and engineers in light of the growing customer demand for cyber risk management.
New jobs for Microsoft software and business application developers across Power Platform and Dynamics will also help to meet clients’ needs. Roles for project managers, consultants, telecom engineers, and support engineers will also be created.
HCS CEO Neil Phelan said the investment comes “in response to an unprecedented demand for key IT services and skills from customers across the board”.
“We are seeing the convergence of major industry trends such as security and telephony in today’s hybrid world,” he said.
“We anticipate further opportunities for growth in the productivity space and we’re excited to expand our capabilities in Microsoft business applications. We also expect continued adoption of hosted telephony, driven by flexible working practices and the replacement of traditional copper wires with fiber lines throughout the country.”
The company expects revenues to double following on from this investment, forecasting €9m in revenue by 2025.
Recruitment has already commenced and the company is hiring across all aspects of the business.
