Indeed expected to add 500 jobs

The Taoiseach is believed to be announcing the expansion later today

Indeed, the world’s largest jobs search website, is expected to announce 500 new jobs for its Dublin-based headquarters for Europe, the Middle East and Africa  over the next two years.

It's believed the company will be recruiting for positions in sales, client services, HR, business development, marketing, finance, strategy and operations roles.

Indeed, which is based in Japan, opened its Dublin office in March 2012 and currently employs a team of 530 people.

Last year the firm outgrew its offices in Grand Canal Docks, moving to a new headquarters in St Stephen's Green with space to accommodate this expansion.

Indeed has sites in more than 60 countries and 28 languages, and is visited by more than 200 million job seekers each month. 

It is understood the new employees are needed to service rapidly growing international business.
