Amazon Expands Workforce in Ireland to 5,000
Amazon on Monday announced it would create an additional 1,000 jobs in Ireland, bringing its workforce in the country to 5,000.
Ireland has a decades-old policy of attracting multinational jobs with a low corporate tax rate, making it a hub for U.S. companies – including heavyweights such as Apple, Google and Facebook – which account for one in 10 local jobs.
Amazon also plans to open a delivery station in Dublin this year, it said.
Many of the new jobs, which include software and network engineers, will be in Amazon Web Services, which has a large presence in Ireland, Amazon said in a statement.
Britain’s exit from the European Union, which is due to come into full force at the end of the year, is expected to complicate the country’s role as a logistics hub for the Irish market.
