Last year, 19,705 jobs were created by companies that were supported by Enterprise Ireland. That is an increase of 8,476 jobs when job losses are taken into account. More than 180,000 people are employed in Enterprise Ireland supported companies, which is almost 10% of the workforce. Figures from the IDA Ireland, released last week, show that multinationals created 15,012 jobs. The net increase in employment was 7,131, one of the highest net levels of job creation in a decade.
Jobs Minister Richard Bruton said the figures were a huge boost.
“This is the best performance in the history of the agency, and great credit is owed to Julie Sinnamon and her staff for this excellent performance.”
