Professional services firm Grant Thornton has announced the creation of 250 new jobs across all areas of its business operations in Ireland.

A significant number of the new posts will be filled in its centre of excellence which opens today.

The positions are permanent roles for individuals with practice and industry backgrounds, and will be filled within the next 18 months.

What makes the centre especially unique for Irish arm of the $4.8bn global organisation, is that companies with financial reporting obligations in multiple jurisdictions will now be able to avail of specialist international expertise in Dublin.

“The centre of excellence was established in response to business needs as organisations look to reduce risk across their compliance functions,”  Tim Lohan, partner in financial accounting and advisory services with Grant Thornton, said.
