Mitchelstown hub created

An outsourcing company has this week announced it is creating 50 jobs at its new hub in Mitchelstown.

Zevas Communications already employs over 150 people in Cork, Dublin and Waterford and confirmed on Monday that it has plans to expand into northeast Cork, creating an additional 50 jobs for its new hub in Mitchelstown.

Zevas Communications already employs over 150 people in Cork, Dublin and Waterford with its headquarters in Cork city. It has three centres across Ireland bolstered by a robust remote worker strategy. Providing support in more than 20 languages, Zevas allows clients quick and easy access into new markets and territories. Its first successful hub was unveiled in 2020 in Dungarvan, Waterford. This became the company’s first hybrid form of working.

The restrictions of the Covid-19 pandemic imposed a working style which Zevas already had in planning. A fluid approach for its staff to work from home or as part of working hubs established in regional towns, to support them and expand its service to customers through-out the world.

Established in 2001, Zevas Communications has customers across Europe, Asia and North America,

The Tánaiste and Minister for Enterprise, Trade and Employment, Leo Varadkar said: “This is really great news for Mitchelstown. Zevas Communications is expanding to the town, creating 50 new jobs. It’s a great boost for the area. The company has embraced a hybrid working model. This is commendable. I’m a big fan of remote working and think it should be one of the positive legacies of the pandemic. The very best of luck to the entire Zevas team.”

John O’Sullivan, Chief Operating Officer at Zevas Communications explained why Mitchelstown was chosen: “Mitchelstown is an ideal location in a central and accessible part of the country, it has a vibrant and skilled workforce within its hinterland, and as we expand is perfectly positioned to attract and accommodate more.

“We were particularly impressed with the site we found here in Mitchelstown. It is state of the art and required very little work to get it up and running. That’s why we have started recruiting already.”
