3 'Jobs Announcements' have been made for Castlebar in the last 3 years
Cloudstrong (19 Jobs - March 2014) .. how many Full Time employees does it have today ? Was to have 19 new employees within 2 years (Feb 2016)
Northgate (150 Jobs - Nov 2013) - was to roll out this target over the next 3 years (by Nov 2016) .. latest news is that 10 will be employed by this April out at Moneen.?? I doubt it will exceed 10 by the year end.
Opensparkz (205 Jobs - March 2015) Is to create up to 250 Jobs over next 3 years (March 2018) .. but depends on considerable outside international funding ...
