Jobs boost as takeaway chain Chopped and software firm Citrix expand
Several hundred jobs are to be created in expansions by a global software firm and a homegrown healthy option takeaway chain.
Citrix is taking on 150 staff at its Dublin office in East Point Business Park as it centralises sales activities to support the company's transition to a cloud model.
Most of the jobs will be in sales and technical support and the investment is being backed by the Department of Jobs, Enterprise and Innovation through IDA Ireland.
Meanwhile, the Chopped fast food chain is to create 320 jobs in Ireland.
It is also hoping to expand in the UK, with six stores due to open next year and more than 100 staff to be taken on.
The business, which offers healthier takeaway meals including salads, wraps, sandwiches and soups, is to double the number of outlets it has in Ireland to 40, with some of the new stores to be run as franchises.
