Examiner.ie reported today that the top four accountancy firms — Deloitte, Ernst & Young, KPMG and PwC — are set to create more than 1,000 jobs over the coming year following Ernst & Young’s announcement that it is to recruit 300 employees.
Yesterday, Ernst & Young said it is hiring more than 300 people in Ireland over the next 12 months, in what it said is a response to growing client demand for the firm’s existing and newly launched business consultancy and accountancy services. Recruitment will take place across Ernst & Young’s offices in the Dublin, Cork, Limerick, Waterford and Belfast.
The firm also launched three new dedicated business units covering healthcare, transport, and cleantech sectors — with specialist recruitment taking place across all three new units as well as further recruitment to enhance the firm’s Aviation sector team.
In November 2010, Ernst & Young disclosed plans to fill 300 positions over 18 months but these vacancies have be filled six months ahead of schedule with a further 300 now required to meet rising client demand, the company said. Managing partner, (Ireland), Mike McKerr, said: "We are recruiting professionals at all levels, from graduates to partner, with the type of sector specific experience which will allow us to provide clients with the insight and advice they need to grow their own businesses".
Rival PwC is planning to take on close to 300 people — 250 graduates for all areas of its business.
Meanwhile, KPMG intends to take on 290 graduates for 2012.
Deloitte said it is to take on 215 graduates at its offices in Cork, Limerick and Dublin. So it is all happening in the world of accountancy!
