Ernst and Young to create 300 posts in Ireland

By Anne-Marie Walsh

Business consultancy firm Ernst and Young will create 300 new jobs across Ireland over the next 12 months.

The company has announced plans to recruit 150 workers to its graduate programme from next year.

Another 150 highly skilled professionals will be hired to senior executive positions in consultancy and accountancy from today.

The job boosts come after the company filled another 300 jobs since last November at its offices in Dublin, Cork, Limerick, Waterford and Belfast.

Most of the new jobs will be based in the Republic, but 21 jobs will be located in Belfast.

The graduate recruits are guaranteed jobs for three-and-a-half years.

The jobs are open to graduates in IT, legal studies, business, accounting and finance. Ernst and Young said the jobs were the result of growing demand for its business consultancy and accountancy services.
