Google’s planned Dublin Docklands expansion promises to create 400 new jobs. The move will bring Google’s employment in the capital to over 6,500 putting it on track to become Dublin’s largest private industrial employer.
Currently Google employs over 6,000 people through a combination of 3,000 permanent staff and 3,000 contractors.
The company’s vice president and outgoing site lead in Ireland, Ronan Harris, said “Our operations in Dublin are contributing to our global success through our work with advertisers, publishers and users across EMEA”. He also stated: “Dublin is recognised as a key driver of growth among our customers and we are constantly innovating to help them grow stronger and better businesses.
