The world's largest enterprise software company Oracle has chosen to move its Nordic sales centre from Dublin, Ireland, to Copenhagen, where Oracle has its Danish head office. The sales centre has been located for seven years in Dublin, where Danes, Swedes, Norwegians and Finns have been selling Oracle's solutions to SMEs.
Oracle has clearly not been satisfied with how long its staff have been staying in their jobs in Ireland: "In recent years, it has been difficult to attract and keep people. It takes about six months to acquire proper knowledge of the company and our products. Our plan was that people stayed at least 2 years, but on average it has only been 12 months, and that has made it difficult for us", says managing director of Oracle Denmark, Stig Jørgensen.
Initially 33 jobs will be moved to Denmark, where Oracle currently has 250 people working at its Copenhagen premises.
The choice of moving the Nordic sales office to Denmark was based on an analysis that Oracle carried out in collaboration with Invest in Denmark. It showed that the Copenhagen area provided the best conditions for Oracle regarding innovation, housing and location in a developing region. In addition, Swedish sales staff have the option to live in Sweden and commute each day over the Øresund Bridge to Copenhagen. The news is reported by national newspaper Berlingske Tidende.
