100 IT jobs in Galway

ONE hundred new jobs are to be created in Galway by a Canadian information technology company.

Pivot Acquisition Corporation confirmed yesterday that it will recruit 25 new staff before the end of the year and a further 75 in 2012. Pivot AC is one of north America's biggest IT solutions providers and the company pointed to Ireland's 12.5pc corporation tax rate, the availability of high-speed broadband and a well-educated, English-speaking workforce as the key factors in deciding to locate in Galway.
