600 new jobs are coming on stream across Ireland over the next 2 years.
Lidl who already employ over 4000 people here are set to recruit hundreds of new staff.
The supermarket giant says the new jobs are due to significant growth in the Irish market share.
Maeve McCleane of Lidl says recruitment will commence immediately.
“As Lidl continues to go from strength-to-strength there are significant opportunities for those willing to join a success story in the Irish market.
"Lidl is now recognised as a leading employer of significant scale in Ireland and with that brings a wealth of opportunities for ambitious and dynamic people with a passion for delivering exceptional service for Lidl Ireland’s 1.5 million weekly customers, whether they work in store or in a variety of other roles throughout our business.
"As an employer we believe in the importance of committing to our staff by providing a supportive work environment with training and development in all areas to help everyone achieve their full potential," she said.
Welcoming the 600 new jobs at Lidl in Ireland, Mary Mitchell-O’Connor T.D., Minister for Jobs, Enterprise and Innovation said: “Lidl’s decision to hire an additional 600 new staff over the next two years is a real vote of confidence in the Irish economy and demonstrates further commitment from a company which has already invested over €1.5 billion in Ireland since 2000."
