AROUND a dozen jobs are to be created in Sheffield after IT support firm Auxilion selected the city for its first international base away from Ireland.
The business’ expansion will create 25 new jobs, split between Dublin and its new Sheffield base at The Workstation, Paternoster Row.
The business was welcomed to the city with expert advice and support from Sheffield Council through Creative Sheffield, the city’s economic development agency.
Coun Leigh Bramall, Sheffield Council cabinet member for business, said: “It is fantastic that fast-growing businesses such as Auxilion have recognised Sheffield is a vibrant, business friendly location.
“A key part of our activity is supporting businesses to invest in the city. We will continue to do what we can help enterprise thrive, to boost the economy and create jobs for local people.”
Eleanor Graham, chief operating officer of Auxilion, said: “Sheffield is really making a name for itself as a technology hub.
“There are already a number of major tech companies located here, and even more small and start-up companies in the enterprise and innovation centres around the city.”
