More than 2,200 tech jobs announced in Ireland during July

31 Jul 2015

There were 2,271 jobs announced in the technology sector during July, almost double that of the previous month, as major plans across the country came to fruition.

There were several major announcements of job numbers well into the hundreds, with one of the biggest coming today (31 July), with news that US drugs manufacturer Amneal has bought a former Johnson & Johnson site in Tipperary, with up to 300 jobs on the way.

A week earlier and Donegal received an even bigger boost when Pramerica, already a major employer in Letterkenny, announced the creation of 330 jobs as part of an expansion that will include the development of a new, state-of-the-art, eco-friendly campus nearby.

Limerick bagged another major jobs haul when taxi app giant Uber said it was hiring 150 by year’s end, with the same amount again over the next few years amid a €4m investment in a new Centre of Excellence focused on customer services.
