While financial services company Carne has announced 50 roles at their base in Kilkenny.

The jobs will be management and graduate positions in compliance, risk management, technology and operations.

Founder and CEO of Carne, John Donohoe, said: “This is an exciting development for Carne in Ireland and for the business globally.


The Kilkenny office will be one of our centres of excellence for our bespoke regulatory technology, development and operations teams and will further differentiate us as the market leader in providing our clients with timely access to expert information in regulation, risk management and compliance.

The independent fund management solutions business is growing, fuelled by a combination of factors such as cost pressures in the asset management industry, growing regulation and demand for greater oversight.

Most notably, as Brexit approaches, UK asset managers will need to make alternative arrangements to future proof the management of their EU products.

This presents opportunity for Ireland and Carne is scaling up in part to ensure it is sufficiently prepared to meet market demands dictated by Brexit.”
