60 new jobs are being created at Dublin animation firm Jam Media.
It means the firm will be more than doubling its work force.
It comes after a multi-million euro investment by the BBC which has re-commissioned a 3rd and 4th series of a TV series called ‘Roy’.
The show filmed as a fly on the wall “mockumentary” follows Roy – an 11 year old cartoon boy living in the real world in Ballyfermot.
The jobs are in animation, casting and post-production.
Jam media currently employs 48 people.
Meanwhile Marks & Spencer Ireland says it is aiming to recruit 440 extra employees for Christmas this year.
It is part of a seasonal recruitment drive to take on an extra 20,000 employees across its Irish and UK stores.
The group says this final figure is 5,000 more than last year.
The roles will include customer assistants, café assistants and store operation roles.
They will be based throughout the 21 M&S stores around the country.
