50 new jobs will be created by Logitech Ireland in Cork

Logitech Ireland is creating more than 50 new jobs over the next three years at its Cork office.

The new jobs will include roles in design, engineering, IT and supply chain functions. Logitech, a long-standing proponent of flexible working, said it is expanding the staffing of several of its teams at the Cork office.  

Logitech’s office in Cork was first established in 1988 and it moved to its current site on Airport Business Park, Kinsale Road, in 2013.

Over the years, the Cork office has grown to be one of the key offices in Logitech’s global footprint. It now employs about 200 people who work in design, engineering, product development, finance, supply chain, people & culture and IT. 

The Cork office also hosts Logitech’s sustainability team, which addresses the company’s commitments to climate change, carbon impact and transparency, and renewable energy. 

Elaine Laird, Logitech’s head of global supply chain and site lead at Cork, said the expansion is a reflection not only of Logitech’s long-term performance, but also the “wonderful culture and spirit” its employees have developed. 

Bracken Darrell, Logitech president and chief executive officer, said that in recent years, Logitech has begun to transform into a design company, tapping into trends in gaming, remote work, video collaboration and creativity. 

Mr Darrell said employees from different parts of the world contributes to Logitech’s business among them Cork has a significant part and he expects to see more talent to join them.

The Tánaiste and Minister for Enterprise Trade & Employment Leo Varadkar said that Ireland is a really attractive destination for technology companies, due in large part to the country’s strong pool of talent. 

Martin Shanahan, IDA Ireland’s chief executive, said that since 1988, Logitech has grown its team in the South West region to 200, and this announcement makes evident the company’s ambition to continue that growth. He also added that this announcement by Logitech shows IDA Ireland’s ability to win high-skilled roles in regional locations.
