Minister Bruton announces new jobs at Neuromod
The Minister for Jobs, Enterprise and Innovation Richard Bruton TD today announced that Neuromod Devices will create an additional 50 jobs in Dublin over the coming years. These highly specialised roles will be key in supporting its growth targets to become a leading global provider of neuromodulation treatments for chronic conditions. This project has been supported by the Department of Jobs, Enterprise and Innovation through Enterprise Ireland.
Minister Bruton said, "A key part of our Action Plan for Jobs is turning good ideas into good jobs. Over the past decade we have invested heavily in Government-supported research and innovation – the challenge we have been trying to address in the past three years is to build on that to create commercial ideas and ultimately jobs. Today Neuromod is announcing that it is creating an extra 50 high-end jobs in Dublin as a result of a product it has created through innovation it has carried out – this is a great example of what we are trying to achieve. I congratulate Neuromod Devices on its achievements and wish Ross and the team every success in the coming years.”
10% of UK adults have tinnitus, according to the British Tinnitus Association, with one in ten going on to report severe effects on their quality of life including depression, anxiety, stress and sleep deprivation. Unlike some tinnitus treatments, which seek to mask tinnitus with other sounds, mutebutton® has been developed to directly reduce tinnitus levels, in order to deliver lasting benefits.
Dr Ross O’Neill, Chief Executive Officer, Neuromod Devices Ltd said, “I am immensely proud of what we have achieved as a small Irish SME to date and this is in no small part thanks to the state support we have received from Enterprise Ireland and the National Digital Research Centre.”
Michael Moriarty, Enterprise Ireland said, “Enterprise Ireland’s strategy is to work in partnership with the Irish companies to support their plans for growth. As an Irish success story, Enterprise Ireland looks forward to continuing to work closely with Neuromod Devices as they seek to deliver a new global standard of care for chronic tinnitus suffers and grow their company to create employment in Ireland.”
