Google to create 600 new jobs in Ireland

Google is to create 600 new jobs at its European HQ in Dublin. The new jobs will bring the total number of Googlers in Ireland to around 1400.

The company is also reported to have signed the lease on another 9,300 square meters of office space in the Irish capital.

Ireland was already known as a favourite destination for US companies looking for a European HQ with both Dell and Intel basing their operations there.

Not only is the population well-trained and speak English, it serves well as a tax haven from the United States. Ireland’s corporate tax rate is 12.5 percent, compared to 35 percent in the US.

The staff in Ireland have been recruited across Europe and represent the tip of a hiring spree for the search engine. The current Google UK jobs site lists 71 jobs in the UK and a further 28 outside Britain that ‘may be of interest’.

Many of these are in vertical sectors ranging from travel to cars to technology to specific strategic areas such as wireless and mobile. Unsurprisingly it is also looking to hire a number of human resources staff.
