Technology firm Dell will add 200 employees to its Irish workforce as the company opens its banking services arm in Dublin. That number is expected to grow to 300 as Dell Financial Services expands.

Dell will establish the EMEA headquarters of Dell Financial Services in Ireland, creating 200 jobs at its Dublin campus in the first phase of the project.

The company, which currently employs around 2,300 people at its campuses in Limerick and Dublin, has located a strategic global hub for operations, services and sales in Ireland, along with an EMEA solution centre and its first Cloud R&D centre.
