Microsoft to create 200 jobs in Dublin

Good news for anyone on the job hunt.

Microsoft has announced that it will be bringing a further 200 jobs to Dublin.


The new employees will work for Mircosoft's EMEA Digital Sales team in Leopardstown, though the company's Irish workers are currently working from home.

Microsoft is particularly looking for people who are fluent in languages, including English, French, German, Dutch, Swedish, Norwegian, Italian and Spanish.

On Tuesday morning, the tech giant also unveiled details of its new Microsoft Sales Academy.

This is a programme that will allow 25 recruits from a variety of backgrounds, who have little or no digital skills, taken on to learn how to develop a digital sales career.


At the end of this academy programme, each of the trainees will get a job as a Digital Sales Representative for the company.

Speaking at the announcement on Tuesday, Taoiseach Micheál Martin said that it is a "strong vote of confidence in Ireland" as a destination for investment, and in the talent of the country's workforce.

The news comes just months after a new €27 million engineering hub was announced for Microsoft's Leopardstown campus.
