Deadline Couriers has announced the expansion of its business in Dublin, creating 80 new jobs over the new two years.

The Irish transport and delivery company, based at Grand Canal Dock in Dublin 2, plans to expand its workforce here from 45 to over 120 by 2019.

Roles at the company are already available for application. It is expected that all 80 roles will be filled by the summer of 2018.

Since its establishment in 2010, Deadline has grown to provide many specialist support services across national and international boundaries including specialist deliveries for the legal, medical, construction and engineering sectors.

CEO Stephen McCann said that the business has seen a rapid amount of growth "and we are in real, immediate need to fill these new positions".

"We're looking for sales people, administration people, van drivers and motorcycle drivers," he said.

Deadline Group, or just Deadline, "are far more than a bike and van courier company now, and our national and international sights and aspirations continue to grow."

The company will be making the move to a new premises in Tallaght in the next number of months to cater for the expanding business.

"I was on the dole in 2010 after being in the courier business. After a few months, I decided to get out and do something," he told independent.ie.

"Now, less than a decade on, we have expanded from one to 45 - and set to create another 80 roles before 2019".
