LinkedIn seeks larger Dublin office space for international HQ

15 Apr 2014

Business social network LinkedIn is said to be seeking larger office space to accommodate its expanding international headquarters in Dublin.

Investment agency IDA Ireland is working with LinkedIn on a plan to lease up to 15,000 sq m (160,000 sq ft) in the Irish capital, The Irish Examiner reported, citing two people with knowledge of the matter.

The individuals had asked not to be identified as the matter is private.

The company employs more than 450 people at offices on Sir John Rogerson’s Quay in Dublin. That number is more than LinkedIn had been targeting for this stage in its business in the city, and if it succeeds in securing 15,000 sq m of office space, it will be among the largest technology employers in Dublin, The Irish Independent reported.

News of an expansion is still on track with the words of Connie Gibney, international human resources director at LinkedIn, who had said in 2011 that LinkedIn has continued to expand since it opened its international headquarters in Dublin in March 2010, working closely with IDA Ireland.
