NIIT, a company that provides multi-disciplinary learning management and training delivery solutions to corporations, institutions, and individuals in over 40 countries, is to establish a European delivery centre in Dublin, creating 110 jobs over five years.
The company, which was established in 1981 and is headquartered in Gurgaon, India, employs 3,000 people in over 40 countries.
Ireland was chosen as the location for the new European delivery centre due to the availability of suitable creative and technical talent and multilingual skills, the cluster of existing learning technology companies and open business environment.
The new roles will include high-end engineers, creative writers and digital media professionals.
Minister Richard Bruton TD, Minister for Jobs, Enterprise and Innovation said: “I have been to India on three major trade missions since taking office and I have seen first-hand the amazing work being done by our Agencies in that market and the massive potential for attracting investments and jobs to Ireland.
Sapnesh Lalla, president, Corporate Learning Group, NIIT added: “Europe is an important and growing market for NIIT’s Corporate Learning Group. Ireland was our country of choice for its extremely conducive business environment, strategic location, availability of multilingual creative and technical talent, and investment potential. We are honoured and very grateful for the support and cooperation that has been extended to us by the Government of Ireland, Minister Bruton, and the IDA. Our vision is to build NIIT Ireland as one of the finest global centres for bespoke content development, training management and delivery excellence.”
Martin Shanahan, CEO, IDA Ireland commented: “The Indian market is an important region in IDA’s growth markets and NIIT is a valuable addition to the growing base of technology companies establishing in Ireland. It will serve as a strong reference seller for other e-learning and Indian companies considering Ireland as an investment location.”
