LinkedIn to create 800 new jobs in Dublin
LinkedIn has announced it is adding 800 staff to its international headquarters in Dublin, which will bring its Irish workforce to 2,000 by next summer.
300 of these roles have been filled but recruitment has already begun for 100 roles currently open in areas such as sales, marketing, customer service, finance and analytics.
The rest of the positions are expected to be filled by the summer of 2020.
“Our growth in Ireland continues at a phenomenal pace, both as an employer, but also as a platform that two million Irish professionals have come to rely on to develop their careers and find their next job," Sharon McCooey, Head of LinkedIn Ireland, said.
"Our Irish office has become our second largest office in the world, after our global HQ, and our Irish members are some of the most active and engaged on our platform. We’re hugely grateful to the Government, the IDA, and the people of Dublin, for their support which has enabled us to grow from a team of three people to 2,000.”
LinkedIn is owned by Microsoft and also revealed today that its membership in Ireland has reached two million people.
