It’s been another major week for jobs in Ireland, with the announcement of 550 new sci-tech roles, and a further 300 roles for graduates.
Those graduate jobs came from KPMG, reportedly making the professional services firm the largest private recruiter of graduates in Ireland.
And KPMG’s generous recruitment doesn’t stop there. The firm also announced 200 permanent roles nationwide.
Other big announcements this week came from Deutsche Bank, which today (9 September) announced 165 new roles, and Beckman Coulter, the expansion of which will net 105 roles for the Clare facility.
Smaller announcements came from Kaspersky Lab, BDNA Corporation and Datum Tool Design.
All of these new jobs should be reassuring for anyone looking for a job or, indeed, for anyone hoping to move to Ireland for work.
If the latter need reassurance before making that big move, they could do worse than look to Bank of America Merrill Lynch’s Joyce Tan. If she’s right – and she most certainly is – the job would only be one of the great things that Ireland has to offer.
Professional services firm KPMG is to create 200 new jobs over the next 12 months, and will also recruit 300 graduates. Roles are spread among the firm’s Irish offices.
