KPMG creating 800 new jobs across the island of Ireland

  • Global consultancy and accountancy firm KPMG has announced that it will create 800 new jobs across its offices in Dublin, Cork, Galway, and Belfast this year.

    It's been an extremely positive few years for KPMG in Ireland, with the company expanding rapidly from around 2,000 staff in 2014 to over 3,400 today. The firm has announced plans to create an additional 800 new jobs across the island of Ireland by the end of 2020, growth spurred by increased demand in Ireland's booming tech sector.

    Around half of the new jobs will be aimed at seasoned professionals with experience and half will be aimed at recent university graduates. Some of those jobs will be created at the Belfast office, which currently employs over 175 people and provides audit, tax and advisory services to local firms.

    "We’re basing our appeal to graduates on the opportunity to work with a diverse range of clients, across a wide spectrum of disciplines spanning technology and digital transformation, international tax, and deal advisory, to name just some of the opportunities," explained KPMG managing partner Seamus Hand.

    The expansion has been driven by uptake in its services by the growing tech sector in Ireland and Northern Ireland. KPMG is now putting an increased focus on areas of technology such as cybersecurity, data analytics, and digital tech. Demand for the audit, tax, and advisory services carried out in Belfast is also seeing strong growth.
