An Taoiseach, Micheál Martin announced the new jobs at the firm’s headquarters in the West Cork Technology Park on the outskirts of Clonakilty town.
Speaking in the almost empty office space - the majority of employees have been working from home due to Covid 19 guidelines - An Taoiseach said, "The story of Global Shares is a remarkable one, illustrating how from small beginnings a company can grow and develop a global footprint. It is an inspiring example of what can be achieved through talent and ambition."
CEO of Global Shares, Tim Houstoun added, "Our growth over the past couple of years has been enormous, but over the next few years, we’re aiming to be West Cork’s first Unicorn, and we’re on track to achieve that. This is something that is exciting for many reasons – including the fact that as an employee owned company, many of our own staff will reap the rewards of the hard work they’ve put in over the years."
