EY to create 94 new Belfast jobs

  • Consultancy firm EY (Ernst & Young) will create 94 new jobs at its Belfast office, which currently employs more than 520 people.

    The company announced it would be creating 600 jobs across its offices on the island of Ireland, taking its headcount to nearly 3,700.

    Taoiseach (Irish prime minister) Leo Varadkar said this helped "reinforce the message that Ireland is a global hub for business and innovation."

    Frank O'Keeffe, managing partner of EY Ireland, said the announcement "reflects our continuing strong growth across the island of Ireland."

    "While there is still huge demand for roles in our traditional service areas of tax, audit, consultancy and corporate finance, we are also now recruiting technology specialists, robotics and AI engineers and data scientists along with other highly-specialised skillsets."
