75 new jobs for Dublin with opening of first Jamie Oliver restaurant in Ireland

Around 75 new jobs are to be created with the opening of celebrity chef Jamie Oliver's first restaurant in Ireland, it has been announced.

Jamie's Italian is set to begin serving at Dundrum Town Centre, Dublin this autumn.

Senior chefs and managers are now being recruited and work will start shortly on a 4,500 sq ft unit in the Pembroke area of Dundrum.

The chef has pledged to work with independent Irish food producers and work to identify suppliers has already begun, with Jamie's Italian International Operations Chef Marcos Georgiou visiting potential farms and factories around the country, along with Irish restaurateur Gerry Fitzpatrick, with whom Jamie has chosen to work for Jamie's Italian in Ireland.

The popular TV chef and author said opening a restaurant in the capital was a "dream come true".

"Anyone who has been to a Jamie’s Italian in the UK knows that we’re all about delicious, affordable food and great staff, so we’re currently on the hunt for around 75 fantastic local people to join our team as chefs and front of house staff.

"We'll be sourcing loads of wonderful local produce to give the place a really special feel," he added.

"I can’t wait for us to be open”.

Senior chefs and managers that want to apply for positions should contact Jamie's Italian via email at recruitment@jamiesitalian.ie.
