It was announced last week that Nostra will create 120 new jobs over the next 2 years. The highly skilled positions are in Engineering, I.T Support, Cybersecurity and Sales and Marketing and will bring the total employee number to 270.
The Irish Managed I.T Service Provider (MSP) was founded in 2006 and is headquartered at a state-of-the-art 10,000 sq. ft. facility in Lucan, Dublin. The company also has satellite, regional offices located in Athenry, Galway and in Mountmellick, Laois. Nostra provides end-to-end managed I.T solutions to a number of world-leading brands and multinationals across multiple industries including manufacturing, pharma, education, healthcare and fintech.
Due to new contract wins, a growing international client base and recent competitor acquisitions, Nostra has experienced rapid growth and reported a turnover of €18 million in 2020 (up from €11 million in 2019). An Enterprise Ireland client, Nostra is forecasting double digit growth in the next few years and is on course to reach a turnover of €50 million by 2026.
Plans are currently in place to expand the existing office accommodation in order to facilitate the increased workforce. The company is also undergoing a complete rebrand and digital makeover and will invest over €500,000 in both the new premises and branding project.
Nostra is looking for Systems and Professional Services Engineers, Cybersecurity Specialists, Tech Sales Executives, Marketing Executives and Customer Relationship Managers. Some of the new hires will be remote roles while others will be offered the option of hybrid working where they can combine working from home with working from one of the Nostra offices in Dublin, Laois or Galway.
Welcoming the news last week, Taoiseach, Micheál Martin said, "I am delighted that Nostra, an Irish owned and based company with offices around the country, has today announced the creation of 120 new jobs over the next two years. Nostra’s continued success speaks to the innovation and dynamism of Irish companies. Today’s announcement is a strong vote of confidence in our talented and skilled workforce and is a welcome boost as we look to get people back to work in sustainable and high-quality jobs and rebuild our economy."
CEO of Nostra, Kevin O’Loughlin added, "Our business is performing extremely well, and we have experienced exponential growth across all services and sectors. This is due to our attention to detail, technical expertise, and innovative approach to Managed I.T Services. Technology changes rapidly and a company must have the ability to pivot, especially now in uncertain times. Our customers are predominantly business owners who are focused on ensuring their day-to-day operations perform as they should. I.T networks, systems and cybersecurity are generally not something they have time to consider and that is where we step in. We manage all of the I.T requirements so that people don’t have to worry about whether their systems are protected and operating as they should."
