January 2015: Great news for Limerick with the opening on January 25 of the viagogo Group’s new Operations Centre in Limerick by Richard Bruton TD, Minister for Jobs, Enterprise and Innovation. The company operates the world’s largest ticket marketplace, and it also announced it intends to double its workforce in Ireland over the next three years, taking it from 100 to over 200 employees.

 

 

 

 

The jobs are supported by the Department of Jobs, Enterprise and Innovation through IDA Ireland.

Oliver Wheeler, Global Head of Communications for the viagogo Group, commented: “We opened in a temporary location in Limerick last year and were overwhelmed by the level of local talent and the support from organisations such as the IDA. We already employ a hundred people in Limerick and, now that our new purpose-built Operations Centre is ready, we plan to hire at least a hundred more over the next three years.”

The viagogo Group has transformed part of the former Flextronics building in the Kilmurry Business Centre into its new 14,000 square feet, state-of-the-art Operations Centre. It joins companies such as Northern Trust, Gilt, Three and Cook in the National Technological Park, Plassey, at the edge of the University of Limerick campus. The viagogo Group has also expanded the scope of roles available in Limerick to include international customer services, sales, software development, finance and operations. The company is currently recruiting for a number of roles, from German-speaking customer services associates to software developers. Anyone interested in positions should apply at www.viagogo.ie/Careers.

Martin Shanahan, CEO of IDA Ireland said: “viagogo has made great strides since establishing in Limerick just last year and today’s announcement that it is to more than double its workforce is evidence of that great progress. This news further enhances Limerick’s reputation as an excellent base for technology-based businesses.

viagogo’s mission is to enable people to buy and sell any ticket, to any live event, anywhere in the world, using the language, currency and device of their choice. There are over four million tickets available on viagogo’s network of 55 global websites today and customers in more than 160 countries have used viagogo’s service to access tickets to live sports, music and theatre events at home and abroad.
