LinkedIn are to create 800 additional jobs at their European headquarters in Dublin bringing the social network’s Irish workforce to 2,000 by summer of 2020.

Sharon McCooey, head of LinkedIn Ireland said, “Our growth in Ireland continues at a phenomenal pace, both as an employer, but also as a platform that two million Irish professionals have come to rely on to develop their careers and find their next job.

“Our Irish office has become our second largest office in the world, after our global HQ, and our Irish members are some of the most active and engaged on our platform.

“We’re hugely grateful to the Government, the IDA, and the people of Dublin, for their support which has enabled us to grow from a team of three people to 2,000.”

Business minister Heather Humphreys said, “I am particularly pleased that LinkedIn’s ReturnIn scheme will provide extra support for those seeking to return to the workforce after taking a career break to look after children or acting as a carer.

“It is also encouraging to see a vibrant community of two million Irish members using the professional network to find jobs and drive business opportunities.”
