Business and technology consulting firm Deloitte has revealed plans to hire 200 graduates, as well as a further 30 experienced professionals in fields spanning finance to technology.
The company, which employs more than 1,200 people across Ireland in fields ranging from auditing, tax, corporate, finance, enterprise risk and technology, is making the positions available at its operations in Dublin, Cork and Limerick.
Graduates can start in autumn 2014 or, in the case where students elect to complete a post-graduate course, autumn 2015. Applications are being encouraged from students of all academic disciplines, not only those with accountancy and business backgrounds.
The positions for experienced professionals are also available across the firm, particularly in in the technology consulting, information security and forensics areas, reflecting the continued growth in demand for these services.
“We’re offering graduates a chance to work in a dynamic environment which has innovation, client service, learning and career development at its heart,” said Brendan Jennings, managing director of Deloitte in Ireland.
“We offer them a chance to work across many sectors, including financial services, consumer business, real estate and infrastructure, technology, media and telecommunications, energy, and the public sector. Furthermore, successful applicants will receive top-class training as they look to obtain their professional qualification and the opportunity to work with some of Ireland’s most prestigious companies,” Jennings said.
“We are also delighted to be recruiting a further 30 experienced professionals. Over the last number of years there has been a heightened focus by clients on the efficiencies and benefits that technology can bring to their organisation, and indeed the need for vigilance and thoroughness with regards to protecting their organisations’ information.”
“Due to strong growth in these areas, amongst others, we are now looking to strengthen and expand our team,” Jennings added.
Earlier this year, Deloitte revealed plans to hire 177 people at its operations in Belfast.
Last year, in a previous announcement, the company also began recruiting 200 graduates for its Dublin, Cork and Limerick offices.
