KPMG announce 200 new jobs in Dublin

The company are also recruiting 300 graduates for its trainee programme.

THE FINANCIAL SERVICES giant KPMG have announced that they are recruiting 200 professionals over the next year.

This new recruitment drive, coupled with a take up of 300 graduates for its trainee programme, means that KPMG will be recruiting a total of 500 employees.

The jobs are in the areas of management consulting, risk consulting, tax, audit, restructuring and transaction services, and can be applied for here.

Shaun Murphy, Managing Partner at KPMG Ireland said that they were hiring “professionals at home and abroad to fill the 200 positions”.

In recent years, we have seen a lot of evidence of Irish professionals working abroad looking to come home.

In the aftermath of the Brexit result, there was an increase in the job uptake in Dublin’s financial sector. Although it is still to early to comment on if the growth is attributable to Britain’s exit from the EU, it coincided with a drop in the number of positions available in London.


KPMG offer financial services such as auditing and risk assessment, and are one of ‘The Big Four’ professional services companies. It’s located on Stephen’s Green, Dublin.

During the economic downturn, the company laid off hundreds of workers, but kept recruitment of it’s traineeship going, saying at the time that it was the future of the company.

The KPMG workforce has grown from 2,000 employees in 2014 to 2,500 to date.
