300 new jobs at Deloitte to bolster digital transformation consultancy

16 Apr 2021

Recruitment for 100 new jobs at Deloitte begins immediately, with the remainder to be filled over the course of the next year.

Deloitte will create 300 “high-quality jobs in technology, strategy and business operations” in Ireland, said Tánaiste and Minister for Enterprise, Trade and Employment Leo Varadkar, TD, at a jobs announcement today (16 April).

Deloitte currently employs more than 3,000 people in Ireland across locations in Cork, Dublin, Limerick and Galway. It also has a Northern Irish office in Belfast.

Recruitment for one-third of these new jobs will commence immediately, while the company plans to have completed hiring for all new roles within the coming 12 months.

Jobs available at the professional services firm will include opportunities in digital, cloud, systems engineering, customer design, future of work, digital finance, digital supply chain, business operations, data analytics and cognitive technologies.

The majority of the roles will be in consulting, while the company will also be recruiting for audit and tax specialists in the consumer and financial services industries.

Drive for digital transformation

Deloitte Ireland CEO Harry Goddard said the creation of new jobs at the company comes in response to increased demand for business transformation advisory services coming from both Irish and international clients. He anticipates this demand will grow even further as businesses need to adapt once again in a post-Covid landscape.

“Our business adapted rapidly and effectively to the changes in the marketplace brought about by the pandemic and our focus has been on supporting our clients as they too transformed their organisations to deal with the immediate needs of a vastly different operating environment,” he said.

“Now, they recognise the need to drive their businesses forward to succeed in the long term, be it building resilience to withstand further disruption or addressing changes to operating models and ways of working, for example.”

Along with the jobs announcement, Deloitte also revealed that it will an official partner to the Olympic Federation of Ireland as part of a four-year deal. This will see the brand sponsor athletes from Team Ireland in the rescheduled Olympic Games set for Tokyo this summer, and up to the next Olympics to be held in Paris in 2024.
