Appointment of 2 Business Development Managers will create 117 jobs in Wicklow

4th June 2012 - Andrew Doyle TD

Andrew Doyle Fine Gael TD, for Wicklow/EastCarlow, has today Thursday welcomed the announcement by the Minister for Jobs, Enterprise and Innovation, Richard Bruton TD, that two Business Development Managers, out of a total of 37, have been appointed to Community Enterprise Centres (CECs) in Wicklow. This is part of a €2 million programme aimed at protecting and growing businesses in the community.

“I am very pleased with today’s announcement by Minister Bruton and Enterprise Ireland that two Business Development Managers have been appointed to Wicklow Enterprise Park located in Wicklow Town and Arklow Business Enterprise Centre.”
“The appointment of a Business Development Manager to these centres will successfully drive business links and enterprise on a community level, and ultimately create local employment.
“These appointments will expand on the successes of these centres, which between them have created 233 jobs in Co. Wicklow. As a result of the appointment of these two new Business Development Managers there is potential to expand this number to 400.

“This announcement will help build Wicklow’s local economy and is an example of the Government delivering on a key commitment in the Action Plan for Jobs. The objective of this measure is to sustain and grow the 800 companies and 5,000 jobs, which are supported by these centres around the country.”

“The Government is allocating €1.6 million of funding to support management infrastructure within the national community enterprise centre network. The centres were selected from application by CECs following a request by Enterprise Ireland.”

“I’m confident that this announcement will have a positive impact on job creation across the county.”
