Online auction giant eBay has announced plans to hire an additional 450 people in the Republic of Ireland, boosting the number of staff at its operations centre in Dundalk, County Louth.
The latest recruitment drive will bring the company’s total number of staff – including its online payments service PayPal – up to 3,550 across the country. eBay says the new jobs will be for roles across its customer service, sales and compliance divisions. Hiring will start immediately, with the aim of finding 110 employees this year and the remaining 340 by the end of 2015.
Global online payments firm PayPal announced this time last year that it would create 1,000 new jobs in Ireland over the next four years. That recruitment strategy is still underway, and should ensure that both eBay and PayPal keep pace with the growing demand for its services across Europe.
