Leading global payment solutions provider announces 10 new jobs

Dublin, IRELAND – April 11, 2019 — AFEX, one of the world’s largest non-bank providers of global payment and risk management solutions, has announced the creation of 10 new jobs, based in Dublin. 

Recruitment has started, with positions available in sales, operations, finance and compliance. The 10 new jobs will nearly triple the size of the current six strong workforce based in Dublin. 

CEO for AFEX Ireland Limited, Finian Brett, said that the jobs have been created because of significant business growth in Ireland. 

“The investment in jobs is a clear signal about the confidence we have in the Irish market. We’ve seen an increasing amount of interest and activity from businesses across the country as they look to maximise their international growth potential. We are excited to be extending our Irish operation and look forward to continuing to provide local firms with a more tailored service to address their global payment, treasury and risk management needs.”

AFEX first launched their office in Dublin two years ago and has just opened their new office on Baggot Street Lower. AFEX has been working with Ireland’s Foreign Investment Agency, IDA Ireland, to help expand their operations in Ireland this year. 

Minister of State for Financial Services and Insurance, Michael D’Arcy TD, who welcomed the announcement said, “Ireland aims to be the European location of choice for innovation in financial services. We have developed a thriving fintech sector, and today’s announcement by AFEX further strengthens this. We will seek to ensure the country remains at the forefront of the development and growth of this sector.”

Commenting on the announcement Kieran Donoghue, Global Head of International Financial Services, IDA Ireland said, “AFEX’s choice of Dublin for this operation shows that financial services companies can establish here quickly in order to provide continuity of service to their customers post-Brexit. Ireland provides a consistent, certain, pro-enterprise policy environment for businesses to grow and thrive."
