KPMG creating 330 Irish jobs
Accountancy and consultancy firm KPMG will create 330 jobs across Ireland in the next year - including in Belfast - in audit, tax and advisery roles. It aims to recruit 270 graduate trainees in Dublin, Belfast, cork and Galway this autumn as well as 60 staff at managerial and senior managerial level across the firm. KPMG employs 1,900 people in Ireland and takes on around 270 graduates each year as part of its trainee programme - believed to be the largest graduate intake of any Irish business. Managing partner Shaun Murphy said: "the signs of recovery are good and strong client demand in many areas means that we are looking to fill roles in several areas of our business. "We see this as a vote of confidence in the calibre of Irish graduates and testament to the significant job opportunities for graduates in Ireland".
