TWO MULTINATIONAL COMPANIES are to create 68 new jobs, with one company recruiting already.

British company Aon, which provides services in risk management, insurance HR and retirement solutions, will make a “significant additional investment” in its Dublin based innovation and analytics centre with the creation of 30 new “highly skilled” roles, it said today.

The centre opened in 2008 and already employs 100 of the company’s 600 workers across Ireland.

“The calibre of our Dublin based team, our analytical tools and the nature of the insights that we share with clients across the globe is a real differentiator for Aon,” Constantin Beier, CEO of the Dublin centre said today.

Separately, in Cork, medical devices firm Depuy announced a $36 million investment in research and development which will support 38 new positions at its Ringaskiddy plant in Cork.

The five-year project is supported by the Department of Jobs, Enterprise and Innovation, through IDA Ireland.

Commenting on the announcement, junior minister Seán Sherlock said it is “further proof that Ireland continues to be a key location” for companies in this area of industry. Just last week, Forbes magazine named Ireland as the best country in the world for business – something Taoiseach Enda Kenny has been saying for years.
