Accenture announce 250 jobs in Dublin

250 new jobs have been announced at Accenture in Dublin.

The global professional services company is looking for a range of people - from entry level graduates to experienced executives in areas such as digital marketing, data science and customer service.

The positions will be rolled out by the end of August.

These new jobs will bring the Irish Accenture workforce up to 2,250 as 200 new jobs were also announced in September for its new centre of innovation.

Accenture has said the job vacancies have been fuelled by client demand.

”Accenture is recruiting to meet client demand fuelled by the return to economic growth that we have seen in 2015 and we expect that to continue into the year ahead,” said Alastair Blair, Accenture’s country managing director in Ireland.

“Great opportunities exist at Accenture to work with some of the world’s most exciting organisations. We are a truly global company and we are working to attract people to Ireland and to encourage those who have emigrated to return.

We’re looking for highly motivated, skilled individuals who share our passion and commitment to client service and who can look forward to a career that offers opportunities, progression and the chance to work at the frontiers of new technology.”
