West Cork based Global Shares, a leading global provider of share plan administration software, share-dealing, global custody and financial reporting tools has this week announced the creation of a further 80 new jobs due to rapid global expansion, bringing its total global employee base to 228.

The new positions, some of which are supported by the Department of Jobs, Enterprise and Innovation through Enterprise Ireland, are across many areas of the business – IT, Financial, Multi-lingual Share Plan Analysts, Service Desk, Trading and Legal. Recruitment will begin immediately with all positions to be filled over the next 24 months. Eighty per cent of the new positions will be based in Ireland, primarily at its headquarters in Clonakilty.

The recruitment drive comes on the back of significant growth in Global Shares’ client base, which has grown in the past two years from 150 to 250 clients based in 25 countries with participants in over 100 countries globally. During this time Global Shares has signed contracts with six FTSE 100 companies and the company’s client listing includes GSK, Skanska, Sage, Irish Life, Legal & General, Generali and others.

This week’s announcement follows the rapid growth in employee numbers over the last number of years rising from 68 staff in 2015. The latest recruitment drive will grow the Global Shares team to a total of 228 staff members across the company’s 10 offices – Clonakilty, Cork City, Dublin, London, Edinburgh, Portugal, Germany, New Jersey, California & Hong Kong.

Global Shares is Irish-owned and Irish-headquartered and has invested significantly in its home market in recent years, opening new offices, establishing a new Irish team and gaining an influential client base. The company works closely with the Irish ProShare Association (IPSA) in the drive to grow awareness of employee share ownership with a particular focus on schemes such as the APSS, Clog & SAYE. Global Shares also supports the Government initiative to introduce new share scheme legislation for Small to Medium Sized Enterprises in Budget 2018.

The Cast of Harold Pinter’s ‘No Man’s Land’ are on their way to the All-Ireland finals, having won 26 awards, including five best of Festivals, at the Amateur Drama League of Ireland annual three act festivals. The play ‘No Man’s Land, by Harold Pinter, the Nobel Prize Winning Author is directed by Jennifer Williams.

One last opportunity to view this multi award winning play at Skibbereen Town Hall, on Saturday 14th of April, before the finals.

Having met by chance in a pub, two aging writers continue a long night of drinking and reminiscing in a stately London home. As the night wears on, their conversation wanders through memories long forgotten or invented. Is their encounter real or a delusion? Are they strangers or do they share a past history? When unexpected guests intrude upon an increasingly surreal evening, the atmosphere quickly changes from friendly to threatening, and the encounter becomes a game of survival.

Tickets may be purchased at the door or in advance by emailing schulldramagroup@gmail.com
