Engineering group Jacobs is to create 200 jobs in Cork, Dublin, and Belfast over the next two years.
The move comes as it announced a €4.5m investment in its Cork office.
The roles being created are in the areas of project and construction management, design, commissioning, qualification and validation.
Jacobs chair and CEO Steve Demetriou said: “Today, we continue to capture attractive growth opportunities for complex work in the advanced facilities and infrastructure markets that we are uniquely positioned to perform.”
I attribute this to our highly talented people and their relentless commitment to providing world-class, high-value solutions for our clients.”
Jacobs, which is marking 45 years since opening its office in Dublin in 1974 – its first operation outside of the United States – employs more than 1,100 across the island of Ireland.
IDA Ireland executive director Mary Buckley said the move was “a welcome investment.”
“The company has demonstrated a strong commitment to Cork where it is a valued employer whose longevity has been of substantial benefit to the local economy.
This expansion demonstrates further commitment by the company. I wish them continued success.”
