IT project specialists Aspira have announced 50 new high-level jobs in Cork.

The company says it experienced growth of 65% in 2015, due to a number of new project wins.

It also acquired IT services and support firm, B-TEC Solutions - which will expand the company's range of offerings.

The 50 new jobs will be based primarily at the Cork headquarters, with some in Aspira's Dublin office.

They will be rolled out over 18 months and include project management, business analysis and software development roles.

Taoiseach Enda Kenny officially opened Aspira's new headquarters in Little Island today.

Aspira CEO, Pat Lucey, said: "The new roles we are announcing today will strengthen our delivery capability and our management team at a time when we are bolstering our service offerings, and preparing for expansion to international markets".

"We forecast overall sales to more than double over the next three years, with international sales growing faster again", he added.

Aspira, which has refreshed its brand from AspiraCon, was established in 2007 and currently employs 28 people.
