PayPal is to create 100 new jobs at its Global Operations Centre in Ballycoolin, Dublin.

The positions will be filled by mid-April and will contribute to bringing the number employed by the company in Ireland to 3,000 by 2018 - including 1,600 in Dublin and 1,400 in Dundalk.

Currently PayPal employs more than 2,400 people here.

Over the next two months, PayPal will recruit for customer service and team leader positions, including customer support and risk operations.

The 100 new roles are for English-speakers. In ­addition to these PayPal also has a ­number of foreign language roles ­currently open to ­interested applicants.


The positions offer options to work day shifts, evening shifts or night shifts, and are open to candidates with varied work experience and qualifications.

Louise Phelan, PayPal Vice President of Global Operations for Europe, Middle East and Africa, said the announcement is an endorsement of the quality of the workforce in Ireland.

"Right now, we are looking for customer service professionals with fluency in ­English," she said.

"The successful candidates will be responsible for assisting our customers and resolving their queries.

"Career opportunities at our diverse and multicultural ­offices in Ireland have never been better.

"We are particularly proud of the fact that many of the roles we create are suitable for unemployed people who we recruit from the live register.

"Our new team-mates will join colleagues representing 40 nations and will be eligible for fantastic career, personal development and training opportunities.

"Our PayPal team-mates are changing the way people pay and get paid. They are working at the cutting edge and innovating constantly."
