EY is giving Ireland an employment boost.
The professional services firm has announced plans to create 600 new jobs across the country over the next year.
The positions will be spread across the company’s offices in Galway, Limerick, Cork, Dublin, Waterford and Belfast.
Investing in our workforce to ensure we have the right skills to support our clients is a top priority for us. With that in mind, we are delighted to announce we will be creating 600+ new jobs across the island of Ireland in the next 12 months https://t.co/VUNs5Hgl7V #jobfairy pic.twitter.com/WnSgymiH50

Three hundred and sixty six of the jobs will be based in EY’s two Dublin offices and 234 will be in the other cities.
The employment opportunities are in the areas of technology, corporate finance, business advisory, tax and accountancy.
Frank O’Keefe, who is Managing Partner with EY, says balanced regional development is key:
“We in EY believe that that’s a critical issue. It’s a critical issue to give talent the opportunity to work wherever they want to reside on the island of Ireland. Technology allows that to happen, our office network – ten offices in six cities across the island of Ireland – also makes that happen.”
