Financial services firm EY is creating 900 new jobs across Ireland, taking its workforce here to 5,100 people.
The company said 550 of the new positions will be experienced hires while 350 will be filled by new university graduates.
The positions will be based at EY's offices in Dublin, Belfast, Cork, Galway, Limerick and Waterford.
EY said it aims to fill the 550 experienced roles as soon as possible, while the majority of the 350 graduates were offered roles this year and are now being onboarded.
EY Ireland Managing Partner Frank O’Keefe said “strong client demand” had given the company confidence to continue with its growth plans.
“We’re seeking to recruit the brightest and most diverse talent across a host of disciplines to join our brilliant teams,” he said.
“We recognise the important role we play in supporting the development of Ireland’s future business leaders and so we have a laser focus on ensuring our people have access to world class training and mentoring throughout their career at EY.”
EY Ireland announced the jobs on the back of its latest financial results, which saw revenue increase 26% to €536m in the financial year to June 2022.
