IDA Ireland CEO Barry O’Leary said: There are now over 166,000 people working in IDA client companies - the highest level in the history of IDA Ireland.

We are glad that the work of IDA Ireland has been recognised by the addition of extra resources.

Put simply, having 35 jobs for our global operations will enable us to get in front of more companies and convince them to locate their business in Ireland.

These new hires will help us create of an additional 10,000 new jobs  - 6,000 direct & 4,000 indirect over five years. 

Our new team will be employed across a number of divisions including emerging markets and a new division which will investigate “new forms” of FDI including oil and gas and marine services.

As part of this new allocation from the Department of Jobs, Enterprise and Innovation, IDA Ireland will also refocus its existing resources on new areas of growth including the “internet of things”.

In 2014, IDA Ireland will target 13,000 new gross jobs yielding approximately 6,000 net new jobs and work to win another 155 new FDI investment projects in 2014 with 20 per cent from growth markets.
