It was announced today that SL Controls, the specialist software integration firm, is to create 50 new jobs over the next 18 months. The highly-skilled positions are in the engineering field and will bring the total workforce to 140.
Established in 2002, SL Controls is an international provider of equipment system integrated solutions to a range of world-leading brands across a number of industries including Medtech, Pharma, Healthcare and Technology. An Enterprise Ireland client, SL Controls has offices in Sligo, Dublin, Limerick, Galway and Florida and has customers – mainly multinationals – in Ireland, across mainland Europe and the US.
The new roles announced today will be in Ireland, but the company will also be hiring in the US where SL Controls continues to expand. It is also looking to add a new Cork presence to its number of locations and a new Director of Corporate Services has been recruited who will head up development in this region.
A percentage of the new hires will be location independent remote roles and others will be offered the option of hybrid working where they can combine working from home with working from an office. Some of the roles SL Controls will be looking to fill include – Systems Engineers, Validation Engineers, Project Managers and Software System Designers.
Welcoming the news, Tánaiste and Minister for Enterprise, Trade and Employment, Leo Varadkar said,
“This is a fantastic example of an Irish owned and based company competing and winning business internationally in a very competitive market. Over the next 18 months SL Controls will hire 50 highly qualified staff at locations throughout Ireland.
I’m particularly impressed by the company’s commitment to flexible working arrangements, which reflects the ambition contained in the Government’s recent Remote Working Strategy. Congratulations to the team involved and the very best of luck with this new ambitious phase of growth.”
“Over the last year, we have found there is an appetite among our staff for remote working or a hybrid of working from home and being in the office or on a client site. We feel very strongly that we should be offering this option to our employees – both existing and new – and allow them more flexibility in their roles, as the work allows. It might suit some people to return to the office full-time while others might find one day a week in the office is perfect for them. We are going to work with our team over the coming months to offer them this flexibility.”
