Accenture announced plans to grow and deepen its presence in Ireland, drawing further upon the country’s globally-recognized diversity of talent and business leadership. Specifically, Accenture will hire more than 300 technology and design professionals in Ireland this year. This includes 100 new roles at The Dock, the company’s multi-disciplinary research and incubation hub, which was officially opened today.
Taoiseach Enda Kenny said:
The Government has been committed to driving initiatives that create high value jobs and competitive advantage for both multinational and indigenous companies looking to set up leading-edge research, innovation and technology facilities. The opening of The Dock and the creation of new technology jobs validates our strategy. Accenture is a committed, long-term resident of these shores and we look forward to continued partnership as the company further enhances its presence in Ireland.
The new jobs will add to Accenture’s workforce of more than 2,200 in Ireland, offering technology and design career opportunities across a range of areas including artificial intelligence, advanced analytics and the Internet of Things, and industries including financial services, retail, consumer goods, life sciences and utilities.
Located in Dublin’s Silicon Docks, The Dock is one of the world’s most connected and intelligent buildings, using sensors to learn from occupant behavior, react to user feedback and allow the building to continually evolve.
The Dock is supported by the Department of Jobs, Enterprise & Innovation through IDA Ireland.
