130 new jobs announced by two companies today

100 new jobs are to be created in Ireland's first-ever accountancy apprenticeship programme after demand for the skill increased by 66% last year.

Successful candidates will spend four days working with an employer - for which they will be paid - and one day in college during the two-year course, which begins in September.

Regional colleges in Cork, Dublin, Monaghan and Wicklow will support the programme which is being run by Accounting Technicians Ireland.

This is the only apprenticeship council approved programme of its kind in the Republic of Ireland,” said Richard Mullins, ATI’s Marketing and Digital Media Manager.

"ATI is currently affiliated with 70 college locations across Ireland and hopes to further roll out this programme in other counties in future years."

Meanwhile Next Generation Recruitment in Dublin has announced the creation of 30 new jobs at its base in the capital.

The new staff will specialise in recruitment for the IT sector.

Linda Davis, CEO and founder of Next Generation said: “We are very excited that the business is now at an ambitious expansion stage.

"We are seeing first hand great confidence across all sectors and demand for talent especially in the IT and Data Science sectors has never been stronger."
