Deloitte Ireland has announced it will create 300 new jobs in Ireland over the next 12 months.
The company said the majority of the roles will be in consulting with recruitment on the first 100 starting immediately, while the remainder will be hired in the next year.
But there will be job opportunities available across all areas of the business including digital/cloud and systems engineering, actuarial services, customer design, marketing, future of work, digital finance, regulatory risk, digital supply chain, business operations, data analytics and cognitive technologies.
The business will also be recruiting for audit and tax specialists in the consumer and financial services industries.
"Our focus has been on supporting our clients as they transformed their organisations to deal with the immediate needs of a vastly different operating environment," CEO of Deloitte Ireland Harry Goddard 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.
"We are looking to further scale our capability to support our clients," he said.
Tánaiste and Minister for Enterprise, Trade and Employment Leo Varadkar welcomed the jobs announcement, saying it is "vote of confidence" in the economy and Ireland's future.
"The announcement of 300 jobs today is a real boost and vote of confidence in our economy and Ireland’s future,” Varadkar said.
