Paypal to create 150 new jobs in Dublin

Online payments company Paypal has announced it is to create 150 new jobs at its European operations and customer service headquarters in Blanchardstown, Dublin.

According to Paypal the new jobs will support the company's fast growing European business, which it said achieved $1bn in revenues for the first time in 2010.

It said it is looking for full-time and part-time positions in customer service and merchant services for individuals fluent in English and a second language.

More than 1,200 people already work at PayPal’s European centre of excellence in Blanchardstown.

Louise Phelan, senior director for global customer services & EU merchant services, PayPal European operations, said; “PayPal’s continuing success story means that we need to expand our excellent team in Dublin for the fourth time in the last two years.

"We have gone from strength to strength since the Taoiseach officially opened our European centre of excellence in March 2009.

"I look forward to welcoming our new colleagues to our Centre of Excellence here at Blanchardstown. I would also like to thank the IDA for the support we have received from it over the years.”
