Accountancy firm PwC has announced plans for more than 500 jobs in Ireland next year - 300 graduate positions and 200 jobs for fully-qualified professionals.

The company is hoping Irish emigrants will come home to fill some of the roles.

PwC is one of the ‘big four’ accountancy firms. The firm is looking for people to fill positions in:

  • International tax
  • Financial services
  • Data Analytics
  • Cyber security
  • Regulatory compliance

As well as recruiting at home, PwC is hoping to attract Irish people working abroad back to take up some of the roles. Of the jobs on offer.

PwC currently has around 3,000 staff in Ireland and the new jobs will be spread across the company’s seven Irish locations.

“Demand from clients is very high at the moment, the only constraint is people. If you arrived on my doorstep with 200 very experienced people tomorrow morning I would bite your hand off,” PwC’s managing partner Fergal O’Rourke told the Irish Independent.
