The 250 positions are the result of an international competition within the Citi group.

A number of the financial group's European operations wanted the project, but Ireland came out on top.

The jobs will be targeted at third-level graduates and will be in the areas of operations, funds, technology and product development.

Citi has been in Ireland for 45 years and the IDA-supported investment brings their workforce here to over 2,400.

Welcoming the news, the Enterprise Minister Batt O'Keeffe said it's a "strong endorsement of Ireland’s financial services sector".
