Digital marketing company, SLM Connect, is opening a new base in Co Donegal and will hire 125 people.

The company will be known as SLM Eire Teo and is expected to bring 25 recruits on board shortly, with the remaining 100 hires to follow over the course of 2016.

The location in Donegal is a Gaeltacht area, which has struggled with unemployment in the past several years. Gaeltachtai are regions in which the country's native language, Gaelic, is still widely spoken. SLM Eire Teo is supported by the Government agency Udaras na Galetachta, the regional authority for responsible for the economic, social, and cultural development of Gaeltachtai in Ireland.

SLM Eire Teo will offer contact centre and Business Processing Outsourcing (BPO) solutions to its clients.
