Bank of Ireland to recruit 130 IT specialists

DUBLIN: Bank of Ireland plans to recruit 130 IT specialists as part of its efforts to enhance its digital services. More experts are being hired to strengthen the Bank of Ireland’s in-house tech teams.

The bank is looking for technical architects, software developers, engineers, specialised project managers, scrum masters and data analysts as part of its digital agenda.

Thirty of the new roles are in the advanced stages of recruitment, while 100 are already advertised or will be advertised. The recruitment is expected to be completed within the next 12 months.

The Bank of Ireland introduced a hybrid working model for employees earlier this month, with the inclusion of two new remote working hubs.

Bank of Ireland chief operating officer Jackie Noakes said: “The pace of banking is changing rapidly and we’ve reached a tipping point between traditional offline banking and 24/7 digital services. That makes roles like these critical to how we serve our customers, bring products and services to market, and develop our business into the future.”

Ms. Noakes stated that nearly 500,000 customers log onto the Bank of Ireland app every day, and that annual contactless transactions have increased by 100 million in the last three years.

Minister of State for Financial Services Sean Fleming welcomed the Bank of Ireland’s announcement. “I welcome the announcement by Bank of Ireland of 130 new roles in digital technology. This recruitment campaign for highly specialised technology roles highlights the need for investment in digital technology,” he said.
