The global provider of share plan administration software, share-dealing, global custody and financial reporting tools has today announced the creation of the 80 new jobs, bringing its total global employee base here to 228.

The new positions, some of which are supported by the Department of Jobs, Enterprise and Innovation through Enterprise Ireland, are across many areas of the business, including IT, financial, multi-lingual share plan analysts, service desk, trading & legal. 

Recruitment will begin immediately with all positions to be filled over the next 24 months.  

A total of 80% of the new positions will be based in Ireland, primarily at its headquarters in Clonakilty.

During this time Global Shares has signed contracts with 6 FTSE 100 companies and the company's client listing includes GSK, Skanska, Sage, Irish Life, Legal & General, Generali and others.
