Paddy Power Boosts Irish Staff Numbers

According to the latest reports from the Irish land and online gambling group Paddy Power, the company is on a heavy recruitment drive, planing to engage additional 800 people at its new Dublin headquarters..

New staff are needed in the domains of e-commerce, m-commerce, technology development, social media, quantitative research, risk management and online marketing. They will be stationed at Paddy Power's new headquarters at Power Tower in Clonskeagh, which was opened on Oct. 11 by Irish Taoiseach (first minister) Enda Kenny TD.

The company specified that all 800 new jobs will be filled by the end of 2015, which will then see the total number of Paddy Power employees in Ireland go up to 2,783.

Regarding the new recruitment drive, the company CEO Patrick Kennedy said: 'We are hiring at an increased rate and investing heavily in e-commerce to capitalise on structural market growth and emerging opportunities around the globe as more and more countries licence online betting and gaming.

'We are a business born and bred in Ireland and we take pride in continuing to create high quality jobs with the associated economic multiplier effect in this country, particularly given the current economic challenges. We welcome the government's introduction of a licensing regime and commitment to a robust regulatory framework which will sustain and attract investment.'

He also said that of the 800 jobs announced today, 189 have been filled since the beginning of April, which makes an average of 30 new jobs a month, and 100 positions are currently open for applications.

Commenting on this development, Taoiseach Kenny said: 'This welcome announcement of 800 new high skilled jobs by Paddy Power highlights the strides Irish companies are taking in e-commerce and technology. Through our Action Plan for Jobs, we are supporting the transition from the old unsustainable economic model to a new, dynamic economy based on enterprise, exports and innovation.

'Paddy Power's announcement shows how Irish companies can embrace change and respond to new opportunities. I commend the company on its commitment to Ireland and in particular its commitment to retaining and developing Irish graduates.'
