PayPal to hire 100 staff at Dublin hub during April

3 Mar 2016

PayPal has announced it’s to create 100 jobs at its Dublin-based Global Operations Centre to join its existing 2,400 employees working in Ireland.

Ireland plays a significant role in the global operations of payments giant PayPal, with its EMEA operations being orchestrated from its office in Ballycoolin, Dublin.

Now, the company has announced that it is looking to push on with further job creation in 2016, with 100 jobs for English-speaking staff to be created by the middle of April at its Dublin office.

PayPal says it will be recruiting in the roles of customer service and team leader positions, including customer support and risk operations, as part of the company’s eventual aim to employ 1,600 staff at its Dublin office by 2018.

This number will be joined by its Dundalk office, which aims to employ 1,400 staff by 2018, taking its total expected employee numbers to 3,000 in the country, up 600 from its current number.

Diversity is key

PayPal’s VP of global operations, Louise Phelan, recently spoke to about the company’s aim in Ireland to encourage the Irish diaspora to return to their native land to work for the company.

Adding this sentiment, ahead of today’s announcement, Phelan said: “Career opportunities at our diverse and multicultural offices in Ireland have never been better. We are particularly proud of the fact that many of the roles we create are suitable for unemployed people who we recruit from the live register.

“Our new teammates will join colleagues representing 40 nations and will be eligible for fantastic career, personal development and training opportunities.”
