Following 58 employees joining Avantcard workforce in last 18 months, company announces another 40 jobs.

Lender Avantcard has announced the creation of 40 new jobs at its headquarters in Carrick-on-Shannon and satellite office in Dublin. Minister for Business, Enterprise and Innovation, Heather Humphreys said about the announcement:

As Minister, regional development is my key priority, and Avantcard is living proof that you don’t have to be based in a big city to make a big impact.

The announcement of these new jobs comes on the back of an additional 58 people joining the Avantcard workforce over the last eighteen months. Avantcard currently employs 220 people across their offices in Leitrim and Dublin.

The new positions will include customer-facing roles, roles supporting the new An Post and Avantcard partnership announced in 2018 as well as a number of specialist roles to support business growth. The company acquired the Tesco Bank Ireland credit card portfolio in 2018 and has been awarded the Ibec KeepWell Mark and the ‘Great Place to Work’ accreditations recently.

Chris Paul, Avantcard’s CEO said

We had an incredibly busy 2018 as the business continues to expand and we look forward to building on that in 2019 with our new team members.
