Enterprise Ireland to take on 20 New Staff.

Minister for Jobs, Enterprise and Innovation Richard Bruton: Personnel to be based overseas as State targets exports to high-growth markets.  The Government has moved to boost Irish exports into the high-growth “Brics” markets of Brazil, Russia, India, China and South Africa with a big increase in public support for Enterprise Ireland, the State agency for the promotion of indigenous industry .

An additional 20 staff are to be recruited locally in these markets by Enterprise Ireland at a cost of €1.44 million to the exchequer. The money will be allocated in the first instance from the “own-resource” income of the agency itself.

“Boots on the ground in foreign markets are absolutely crucial to building our export base so I think we’ve to make good decisions in the make-up of our budget,” said Minister for Jobs, Enterprise and Innovation Richard Bruton.

The Government believes there is potential with the initiative to generate an additional €250 million per year in exports, or up to 1,200 jobs on the basis that every €1 million in new exports creates at least four new jobs.
