New Delhi: IT firm HCL Technologies on Tuesday said it will establish a software delivery centre in Dublin, Ireland, that will create 80 jobs for IT graduates over three years.
    
With this centre, HCL will service a growing number of HCL clients and prospects in the financial services, insurance and healthcare/pharmaceutical industries, HCL Technologies said in a statement.
    
The plans for the development centre were motivated by a forecast for rapidly increasing demand for IT services in this region, it added.
    
HCL Technologies, which is an IDA Ireland client, will create 80 jobs over three years for IT graduates, the statement said.
    
"If we are to get out of the crisis we're in and create the jobs we so badly need, a key part of that will be to build on our established strengths and once again now take advantage of the rapid growth in the global IT industry," Minister for Jobs, Enterprise and Innovation Richard Bruton TD said.
    
HCL Technologies has global delivery centres in the UK, Poland, Finland, US, Brazil, China, India, Malaysia and Northern Ireland.
    
"This facility, with its specialist skills in software development, including multilingual talent and proximity to our European customers, will add significant value to our global delivery model, from which we can provide onshore and offshore support to meet their specific requirements," HCL President (Europe) Rajeev Sawhney said.
    
HCL has over 4,500 employees across Europe, he added.
