One hundred fifty jobs are up for grabs with Dublin Aerospace at Dublin airport over the next two years, the aircraft maintenance company has announced.
The company is looking to hire skilled technicians and labourers, with 45 positions available immediately.
Taoiseach Enda Kenny will open Dublin Aerospace's new €4.5m landing gear centre at the airport this morning.
The new jobs will bring the company's workforce to 300 within two years, while the investment doubles its capacity to maintain Airbus A320s and Boeing 737s.
