Press Release 17 Jan 2014

Dublin, 23 December 2013 - WITH an estimated 660,000 passengers expected to travel through Dublin Airport over the course of the Christmas season, IDA Ireland has teamed up with DAA to highlight a selection of the opportunities there are for returning friends and family here in Ireland.

The campaign, launched on Instagram today, follows the launch of IDA Ireland’s successful US marketing campaign which reminds investors of What Makes Ireland Great.

DAA will be supporting the campaign throughout the holiday season by featuring the campaign on its digital signage and social media accounts.

IDA Ireland has compiled a list of available positions from a selection of its clients across a number of sectors including technology, life sciences and financial services amongst others.

Barry O’Leary, CEO IDA Ireland said: “This Christmas, thousands of talented Irish people will return to their friends and family from abroad. IDA Ireland has been working hard to expand the number of multinationals locating here. I would urge anyone thinking about returning to Ireland to take a look at this IDA Ireland list, and apply for a job with one of our client companies. There are roles available across the country in some of the world’s best companies.”

Kevin Toland, CEO DAA said: “DAA is delighted to support this initiative to highlight the vacancies that are currently available for high-skilled workers in a range of sectors. Every Christmas, Dublin Airport welcomes home many thousands of Irish emigrants and this year we’ll be using our various social media channels, our website and digital signs at the airport to promote the fact that there are jobs at home in certain sectors.”

A list with a sample of the IDA companies with vacancies in Ireland is attached below.
