EY announces 816 new jobs across Ireland
More than one in four of the roles will be based outside of Dublin.
Professional services organisation EY has announced plans to create 816 new jobs across its seven Irish offices, with 414 experienced hire positions and 402 graduate roles.
The jobs will be in consulting, audit, tax, corporate finance, technology, analytics, cyber security, law, economics and sustainability among other areas and more than one in four of the roles will be based outside of Dublin.
The announcement will bring the headcount in EY to over 4,200 across the island of Ireland.
606 of the roles will be Dublin-based, while the remaining 210 roles will be located in Cork, Galway, Belfast, Limerick and Waterford.
The 414 experienced hire roles will be advertised and filled by the end of EY’s current financial year on 30 June 2022, while a further 402 roles will be filled by university graduates starting this autumn.
Taoiseach Micheál Martin said the announcement on Tuesday was a "strong endorsement of the all-island economy".
"It’s always encouraging to see high-value jobs being created for both experienced professionals and the next generation of university graduates alike, and it’s a testament to the skills and talent available here in Ireland and a welcome endorsement of Ireland’s attractiveness as a place to invest and grow," he said.
Frank O’Keeffe, Managing Partner of EY Ireland, said that the roles will give people the ability to work flexibly from client site, the office, or home.
"The fundamental changes brought about by the pandemic, coupled with wider macroeconomic headwinds and shifting business models, have created an increased demand for our services as we help our clients tackle their most complex business challenges," he added.
"Our clients are increasingly looking to EY to help them navigate change but also to seek out opportunity to help them transform, grow and prosper into the future."
