Huawei Creating a Further 110 Jobs

Supported with a Further €80m Commitment to Research & Development Huawei Says it Will Have Created 310 New Jobs by 2022


Tony Yangxu, CEO Huawei Ireland - Company Creating a further 110 New Jobs in Ireland

Huawei, the Chinese communications technology company, has said it is creating a further 110 new jobs and will invest a further €80 million in Irish research and development (R&D) over the next two years to support its growing business in Ireland.

Over the past 15 months, Huawei has created 200 jobs in Ireland, as well as investing €60 million in R&D. In the next two years, Huawei will invest a further €80 million in R&D in Ireland, effectively doubling its commitment of €70 million made in October 2019, and bringing to 310 new jobs.

Huawei has a broad range of activities in Ireland, where it serves all of the major telecommunications providers with products and business solutions. With a strong focus on helping its business partners roll out 5G across Ireland the new jobs will meet demand for Huawei’s products and services across its sales, R&D, IT development and in its consumer divisions.  The jobs will be mainly based in its Dublin headquarters and across operations in Cork and Athlone. 

Huawei’s R&D operations in Ireland work closely with Science Foundation Ireland research centres including Adapt, Connect and Lero while also having partnerships with a number of Irish third-level institutions, including Trinity College Dublin, Dublin City University, University of Limerick, University College Dublin, and University College Cork, funding Irish research into the areas of video, cloud computing, artificial intelligence (AI), site-reliability engineering and 5G consumer use cases.

Confirming the latest recruitment plans Huawei Ireland Chief Executive, Tony Yangxu (pictured) said; “We are delighted to see such growth in our workforce and business.  Huawei has a long-term commitment to Ireland, where since 2004 we have built a world-class team servicing our ever-growing consumer and enterprise customer bases.  Today’s announcement is testament to the strength of those, as well as the ongoing success of our research and development programme, to which we committed €70 million in 2019.  Our story in Ireland is one of mutual success, as we assist with the national digital transformation and Ireland continues to grow its international reputation as a pro-business environment with great talent available.”

The investment is supported by the Irish Government through IDA Ireland.

Commenting on the announcement Tánaiste & Minister for Enterprise, Trade and Employment Leo Varadkar said; “The news that Huawei will create 110 new jobs is most welcome.  The company is creating new jobs at a time when we really need them with so many people out of work. Despite all the current uncertainty and challenges, Ireland continues to attract top class investment from global technology companies. These 110 jobs, which come in addition to the 200 created over the past 15 months, will be accompanied by an €80m investment in Irish research and development. I wish the company the best of luck with this expansion.”

IDA Ireland CEO Martin Shanahan added; “This is a welcome investment by Huawei which will add substantially to Ireland’s technology and R&D ecosystem.  The company’s continued commitment to significant investments in R&D and creating high value jobs demonstrates Huawei’s confidence in Ireland and the talent pool available here.”
