Google to create 30 full time and 200 temporary jobs with new data centre for Dublin
SEARCH giant Google is to create 30 full time jobs and 200 temporary jobs in a new €75m data centre for Dublin.
The new data centre to be located in west Dublin, will employ 200 people for the construction phase which will take 12-15 months.
When the centre is operational it will employ 30 people on a permanent basis.
Minister for Jobs, Enterprise and Innovation, Richard Bruton today welcomed the announcement and said: “The centre will be a powerhouse of Google’s expansion and ensures Ireland is relevant to the company.”
Limerick man John Herlihy is Google’s vice-president of global ad operations, based in Dublin where he leads a team of 1,500 people in sales and operations.
Google’s Irish operation has grown from 70 employees in 2005 and the Dublin office is now the company’s largest office outside of Mountain View in California and New York.
