It was announced today that Carne, the Irish-founded global provider of fund management company solutions to the asset management industry, will be expanding its Irish operations, creating an additional 250 regional jobs over the next three years.
The expansion is supported by the Department of Business, Enterprise, and Innovation, through Enterprise Ireland.
Carne currently employs more than 50 people at its financial services centre in Kilkenny and is opening a new financial services centre in Wexford. This will involve the recruitment of 50 highly-skilled positions across a broad range of disciplines.
The company is hiring for multiple positions within risk management, compliance and operations and is also looking to recruit IT Developers, IT Architects, Data Miners, Cyber Security experts, financial crime specialists and Business Analysts.
The expansion enables Carne to further strengthen its client offering in the investment fund governance solutions sector as it experiences growth due to greater regulation and increasing demand from investors for independent oversight of assets.
Welcoming today’s announcement, Minister of State for Financial Services, Michael D’Arcy said, "I’m delighted to support Carne Group with their announcement of the creation of 50 highly skilled jobs at their new Wexford financial services centre. A total of 250 jobs between Wexford and Kilkenny over the next 3 years. Carne Group continues to experience sustained significant growth by supporting clients around the world with its next generation fund management services. The expansion is great for Wexford and shows Carne Group’s investment in the region and its talented workforce."
Group CEO of Carne, John Donohoe addded, "The demand for our next generation technology and risk driven asset management solutions continues to drive rapid growth across the entire Group. The expansion of our Kilkenny financial services centre and the opening of our new financial services centre in Wexford reflects this. Our ambition is to support our asset management clients to revolutionise their businesses and our experience is that regions such as Kilkenny and Wexford have a rich pool of talent that can help us achieve this."
