PayPal to create 400 new jobs over next four years
ONLINE transaction giant PayPal has announced another 400 jobs here – even though it has not finished recruiting 1,000 jobs announced two years ago.
The company revealed it will create 400 new roles over the next four years, at a launch attended by Taoiseach Enda Kenny and ministers Brendan Howlin and Richard Bruton.
However, it still has to fill 334 of the 1,000 positions it committed to recruit by next year in an announcement made in 2012.
A company spokesman said t 666 of the 1,000 positions had been filled and the remaining recruits would be hired by the end of this year.
He said the new roles will be similar to those advertised in the previous recruitment drive.
Staff are being sought to work in customer solutions, risk operations, merchant services, telesales, and operational excellence.
Recruitment will begin immediately for the jobs, which are primarily English-speaking positions, which will be based at the eBay Inc European Operations Centre in Dundalk.
Mr Kenny said the announcement "further enhances Ireland's reputation as a prime location for global businesses and is a tribute to our talented and flexible workforce".
The 400 jobs will bring PayPay's workforce to 2,900 by 2018. The jobs will be advertised at www.paypaljobsireland.com
