Jacobs is to create 200 new jobs in Ireland over the next two years.

The company – which already employs 1,100 people across the Republic and Northern Ireland – plans to fill the positions in Cork, Dublin and Belfast.

As part of the announcement Jacobs unveiled a €4.5 million investment in its office in Cork.

Welcoming the announcement, Agriculture Minister Michael Creed said: “Today’s announcement of 200 jobs, across the island of Ireland is testimony to their continued success and reflects the world-class expertise and offering they bring to national and global clients.

“It is wonderful to see the company go from strength to strength in Cork. I wish Jacobs continued growth and success.”

Jacobs says it provides “end-to-end solutions” for infrastructure, biotechnology, pharmaceuticals, data centres and manufacturing clients.

The firm’s headquarters are in Texas, and it has operations in Cork, Dublin, and Belfast.
