PayPal has announced it’s to create 100 jobs at its Dublin-based Global Operations Centre to join its existing 2,400 employees working in Ireland.

Ireland plays a significant role in the global operations of payments giant PayPal, with its EMEA operations being orchestrated from its office in Ballycoolin, Dublin.

Now, the company has announced that it is looking to push on with further job creation in 2016, with 100 jobs for English-speaking staff to be created by the middle of April at its Dublin office.

PayPal says it will be recruiting in the roles of customer service and team leader positions, including customer support and risk operations, as part of the company’s eventual aim to employ 1,600 staff at its Dublin office by 2018.

This number will be joined by its Dundalk office, which aims to employ 1,400 staff by 2018, taking its total expected employee numbers to 3,000 in the country, up 600 from its current number.

PayPal’s VP of global operations, Louise Phelan, recently spoke recently to Silicon republic about the company’s aim in Ireland to encourage the Irish diaspora to return to their native land to work for the company.

Adding this sentiment, ahead of today’s announcement, Phelan said: “Career opportunities at our diverse and multicultural offices in Ireland have never been better. We are particularly proud of the fact that many of the roles we create are suitable for unemployed people who we recruit from the live register.

“Our new teammates will join colleagues representing 40 nations and will be eligible for fantastic career, personal development and training opportunities.”

E-commerce company CarGurus is opening a new European HQ in Dublin with the promise of 100 jobs as the car seller moves outside of its US home.

Brought to Dublin through the ConnectIreland scheme, CarGurus’ new office will host technical development, sales and account services teams that will build CarGurus’ country-specific operations in Europe.

Last year the company set up a UK service, with this Dublin hub working as a base for that and beyond.

The company claims to have 19m unique visitors to its site every month, with proprietary search technology, data analysis and community reviews driving customers to its service which, in a nutshell, finds local dealers for customers to buy from.

“Dublin is full of amazing talent, and we are actively recruiting professionals in the areas of inside sales and account management,” said Kristen Kenny, CarGurus VP people and talent acquisition.

“We’re looking for smart, ambitious people who want to be a part of a thriving, entrepreneurial consumer technology company with a very bright future in Europe.”
