Professional services firm EY today announced the opening of two new offices – in Dublin and Galway – and the creation of 270 new jobs.

The firm, which provides assurance, tax, transaction and advisory services, already employs around 1,800 people in Ireland.

EY expanded its workforce by over 25% in the past two years and said that it will recruit 220 experienced hires across its business over the next 12 months. It will also take in 50 more graduates, for a total of 250, next September.

The roles on offer vary from accounting, finance, engineering and IT to consultancy and business. The ‘Big Four’ firm recently hired Partner, Feargal de Freine, from Baxter Healthcare.

New Offices

The new hires will be based across EY’s seven offices in Ireland, including its new and now fully operational offices, located in the Station Building, Harcourt Street, Dublin 2 and Eyre Square in Galway city.

In addition to hiring 25 people for its new Galway office, EY will also increase its footprint in Limerick, where it currently employs over 50 people, having just signed the lease on a new office space in the city that can accommodate up to 100 people.

In FY15, EY posted double digit growth across all four service lines – assurance, tax, advisory and transaction advisory services – and the firm said will continue to invest in and recruit in these areas.

Mike McKerr (pictured), country managing partner, EY Ireland, said: “As we grow our business we need to find the right mix of talent to meet our client demands and we are delighted to be in a position to create these additional 270 jobs.

“We are recruiting professionals at all levels, from graduates through to directors and partners, with the type of sector specific experience which will allow us to provide clients with the insight and advice they need to protect and grow their businesses and customer base.”
