PhoneWatch, the market leader in monitored home security solutions, has announced plans today to create 230 new jobs in ten new locations around Ireland, including Athlone.


Recruitment will commence immediately for the new roles in the engineering, sales and operational areas of the business in four of the ten locations - Athlone, Limerick, Galway and Waterford.


PhoneWatch, which currently employs 150 people in Ireland, was acquired by Norwegian company Sector Alarm Corporation last year. The new investment will see PhoneWatch expand its footprint nationally, opening offices in Dublin, Cork and up to ten other regional centres.


Welcoming the announcement, the Minister for Jobs, Enterprise and Innovation Minister Richard Bruton, TD, said; “This announcement by PhoneWatch that they will create 230 jobs over the coming years is very welcome. A key part of our Action Plan for Jobs is delivering a regional spread in job-creation, and we have seen significant progress on this in the past year with jobs now growing in every region of the country.”


“Today’s announcement that over 200 jobs will be created in 12 regional centres is a further boost in this. I congratulate PhoneWatch and Sector Alarm Corporation on this new investment,” he added.


Meanwhile, Eoin Dunne, Managing Director, PhoneWatch said PhoneWatch monitored alarm systems are installed in more than 100,000 homes and businesses around the country.  


“We have exciting and ambitious plans for growth in the Irish market and this new investment will help us realise that ambition. We are establishing a regional office network to bring us even closer to our customers and to enable us to deliver an enhanced and superior service to our customers.”  


“Our strong regional presence will also be strategically important to us as we introduce innovative new products and services to the Irish market and continue to grow our business here,” he concluded.
