Athleague-based tech firm announces expansion

A technology services company based in rural Co Roscommon has announced its intention to recruit ten new full-time taff as part of its current expansion plan. The new jobs will encompass a range of skill sets including positions in technical and engineering roles as well as finance, digital marketing and sales.

myITdepartment.ie, which has moved to new premises in Athleague, will employ a total of 28 employees at the end of its recruitment drive. Newly-appointed Minister for Communications, Climate Change and Natural Resources, Denis Naughten TD, will officially open the new premises this afternoon – his first outing as a Government Minister.

Founder and Managing Director of myITdepartment.ie, Seamus Quinn said, “We are delighted to be in a position to offer these high quality jobs, particularly in rural Ireland. We have built up a very successful, growing company in the midlands despite a number of challenges including a lack of high speed broadband, which is obviously crucial to our business. We have had to invest significantly in a wireless connection to facilitate business growth and the high calibre services we offer. The new government should prioritise investment in services outside of Dublin to enable more SMEs to develop and provide high quality employment.”

“Thanks to the broadband that we have invested in, we can cater for clients right across Ireland as well as overseas, in the UK and US – and we are expanding more this year into those international markets,” continued Seamus. “It gives us great flexibility and enables us to cater for clients wherever they are located. The widespread availability of high speed broadband across rural Ireland would open up huge opportunities for further development and employment in the region.”

Established in 2003, myITdepartment.ie provides full IT service support and managed technology services from its offices in Roscommon and Dublin to more than 200 clients across the country as well as overseas in the UK and the US.
