Today’s announcement of at least twelve new jobs by a Galway-based utility broker could boost the economy by €500,000 annually.
Diocesan Managed Services, which is Headquartered in Gort, said it will create 12 local and national roles in account management, sales support and general administration in the coming weeks.
Managing Director Stephen Hayes claimed this will boost the economy by €500,000 and that this announcement reflects the company’s performance in the energy and telecommunications sector.
“It will also allow us to take advantage of opportunities in Ireland and to examine potential export markets in 2019.
“As a result we expect to make further job announcements in the near future,” said Mr Hayes.
Diocesan Managed Services is a leading utility savings partner for schools, churches and not-for-profit organisations throughout Ireland.
The company has also recently established an office in Hungary.
The Irish SME is self-funded having received no backing or financial support in the form of grants, loans or program participation from government agencies.
Mr Hayes added: “It can be challenging to secure financial support from government agencies if your business or strategic plans don’t fit their selective criteria.
“Despite the difficulty many SME’s face in securing government agency funding, I would encourage business owners to be innovative and really push the boundaries when it comes to unearthing solutions to grow your business.”
