French environmental services group Veolia is targeting significant growth in Ireland, announcing 300 jobs as we “transition to a low carbon economy”.
The new roles will be across all divisions, with water infrastructure and biomass energy the main growth areas. They are starting to recruit for their Co. Mayo biomass plant, and will build another two by 2020.
Employing 500 people in the country, this latest 300-job expansion, though, is more focused on what it calls a ‘circular economy’ – with roles coming on stream over the next five years. This ‘circular economy’, according to country manager Pat Gilroy, “could contribute €1.65 billion to the Irish economy and create as many as 5,000 jobs over 10 years”.
“We are now poised for expansion in the Irish market, targeting double digit growth annually over the next five years and creating 300 new jobs,” he says. “As we transition to a low carbon economy, it is imperative that companies can access environmentally sustainable solutions. “We are setting out to do just that, providing businesses in Ireland with the means to manage their resource needs more efficiently and grow with us in a circular economy.”
