More than 800 new jobs will be created across the island by professional services company, EY, over the next year.
Just over half of the jobs will be offered to those with experience, while the rest will be for recent graduates.
The new roles will be in all seven of the company’s offices in the Republic and the North.
Three-quarters will be based in Dublin, with credits in Cork, Galway, Belfast, Limerick and Waterford.
It will cover a range of disciplines including tax, audit, consulting, economics, law, sustainability, technology, and cybersecurity, among other areas.
The number of employees of the company on the island will increase to 4,200 people.
EY said it is adding to its team as a result of a period of growth in all areas of the business in which it is active.
said Frank O’Keefe, Managing Partner, EY Ireland.
He added that EY’s new hybrid business model will mean that jobs can be done by people residing across the island.
“If we’ve learned anything in the past 18 months, it’s that the best talent can be located anywhere on the island and they can still consistently deliver great results,” he said.
“Our employees will have the flexibility to work from a customer location, EY office or from home in a way that works best for our customers, our employees and our business.”
Taoiseach welcomed the news, saying it was an important milestone for EY and a strong endorsement of the economy of all the islands.
“It is always encouraging to see high-value jobs being created for both experienced professionals and the next generation of university graduates alike, which is a testament to the skills and talents available here in Ireland and a welcome endorsement of Ireland’s appeal as a place to invest,” said Michel Martin.
