Professional services firm KPMG is to hire 800 new staff across the island of Ireland this year.
It said that 400 experienced workers would be taken on and that there would be another 400 openings for graduates in the fields of audit and assurance, tax consulting, deal advisory and consulting.
"The challenges of rapid technological change and greater regulation are among the key drivers for success in Irish business and are reflected in the increased demand for our services and the roles we're looking to fill," said Seamus Hand, managing partner at KPMG Ireland.
The new jobs will be in offices in Dublin, Belfast, Cork and Galway.
KPMG already has 3,400 employees in Ireland and in 2018 its revenues were €414m.
Mr Hand said that demand for its services was growing.
"Increased focus on technology including areas such as cybersecurity, digital, and data analytics is resulting in strong growth in these services, as well as continued demand for our expertise in the audit, tax and advisory areas," he said.
