HCS invests €3.2m to double workforce and open Cork office

Neil Phelan, CEO, HCS: We are thrilled to announce this investment in our business.

HCS, a leading business IT, security and telecoms company, is investing €3.2m to double the size of its workforce and business revenues within the next three years.

The company has commenced its recruitment programme and will grow its workforce to 60 during this time. Following the investment, HCS is forecasting increased annual revenues of €9m by 2025.

HCS provides secure integrated IT, telecoms and productivity solutions to enable better business performance for Irish organisations. The company uses secure by design principles to ensure that it significantly reduces risk for customers with security built-in.

Headquartered in Waterford and with a base in Dublin, this investment has enabled HCS to open a third location in Cork.

The company will be creating sales roles across key growth areas including security, telecoms, business applications, and managed services, and will be hiring cybersecurity consultants and engineers in response to growing customer demand for cyber risk management.

Additionally, HCS is creating roles for Microsoft software and business application developers across Power Platform and Dynamics, as organisations look for ways to support the shift to the cloud and enhance productivity. HCS will also be hiring project managers and consultants to underpin its Microsoft capabilities.

As distributed workforces increasingly move from traditional telephony to hosted platforms and collaboration tools, the company will be hiring telecoms engineers and support staff to meet the rising demand for more flexible working. HCS is also creating positions for support engineers within managed IT services.

This investment in the business will provide HCS with the enhanced technology systems and skills it needs to expand its solution portfolio.

Neil Phelan, CEO, HCS: “We are thrilled to announce this investment in our business in response to an unprecedented demand for key IT services and skills from customers across the board.

“We are seeing the convergence of major industry trends such as security and telephony in today’s hybrid world. We build security into everything we manage for customers and we expect to see high growth across cybersecurity and managed IT services in the face of evolving threats and the rise in hybrid working.

“We’re really excited by the growth opportunity for HCS and are meeting this with a significant investment in our people, platforms and processes to allow us to grow at pace throughout Ireland.”
