Big Five consultancy player Ernst & Young is to create 30 new jobs in Dublin to reflect growth opportunities in supporting Irish exporters, multinationals and entrepreneurs.
The firm is recruiting 30 new senior roles across advisory, assurance and business support services.
Ernst & Young posted a 12pc increase in revenue for its Irish practice over the past 24 months. Revenues grew 5.7pc to €130m for the financial year 2012.
Managing partner for Ireland Mike McKerr says Ernst & Young’s Irish firm has invested heavily in working with cross-border businesses on a range of issues, from post-deal integration, to assisting multinationals with moving their international operations to Ireland. However, McKerr stresses that “opportunities on home soil are also driving growth”, and says “the firm is winning and investing in all the major markets in which it operates across the island of Ireland”.
The company has also appointed Graham Reid to its Transaction Advisory Services team and Frank O’Dea to its Performance Improvement Advisory division.
