Bank of Ireland announces the creation of 100 new tech jobs

Bank of Ireland has announced 100 new tech jobs that will focus on developing its digital banking services.

The bank is looking to fill a variety of roles, including technical architects, software developers, engineers, specialist project managers, and data analysts.

It follows the recruitment of 130 similar technical positions in 2021.

The company says this latest recruitment drive will support its continued improvement of digital services across retail, business and corporate banking, as well as the bank’s wealth management and insurance businesses.

Jobs will be filled under the Bank of Ireland’s flexible working policy, which means candidates can be based anywhere on the island of Ireland, working from a combination of home and office centers with access to a network of remote work centers.

“We have many colleagues with deep technology expertise and these new positions will add to that.

“We are ambitious for the development of our digital services and we offer a very progressive approach to flexible working,” said Eimear Harty, Bank of Ireland’s director of human resources for Group Technology & Customer Solutions.

In December, Bank of Ireland was fined €24.5 million by the Central Bank for regulatory breaches relating to its IT systems and associated internal controls.

The regulator found that Bank of Ireland had not put in place a robust framework to ensure continuity of service for it and its customers in the event of a significant IT disruption.

The bank acknowledged the breaches and apologized saying it had invested heavily in IT to fix the problems.
