Mazars to double staff numbers in Galway
Audit firm Mazars is to double its headcount in Galway after opening a new internationally-focused outsourced accounting services centre in the city.
The centre - which builds on the firm's outsourced business based in Dublin - will see the firm create 20 new jobs, while a further 10 new roles will be created in its audit, tax and advisory practice, now also located in its new 6,000-square-foot office at Mayoralty House in the city.
"Mazars Ireland is one of the fastest growing professional services firms and the further expansion of our Galway operation is testament to our work and the services we provide as a business," said Mark Kennedy, managing partner at Mazars. "Earlier this year we announced the continued growth of our Limerick business, and I am delighted to see the Galway office enjoying similar success."
The office move had come as a response to continued growth within the business and recruitment has begun to fill the new positions in outsourced accounting business, he said.
These additions bring the number of Mazars Ireland staff to more than 400 in Limerick, Galway and Dublin. Mazars Ireland is part of a single international integrated partnership involving more than 20,000 people in the sector across 86 countries.
Mazars is expanding its client offering to service the increasing demand for outsourced accounting services, it said in a statement. The factors driving demand include the attractiveness of the west for multinational organisations wishing to outsource accounting functions, the benefits associated with the outsourcing and the general globalisation of businesses, it said.
Mazars said that it had a "niche speciality in the provision of global compliance services to multinational companies".
IDA Ireland chief executive Martin Shanahan said Mazars' decision to expand its footprint in Galway to service its global clients was "very welcome. Mazars is a great addition to the thriving business ecosystem in the west".
