Good news on the jobs front: 300 new jobs are heading to Limerick

“This is great news for Limerick and the mid-west region,” said Taoiseach Enda Kenny.

THERE’S SOME GOOD news on the jobs front this morning, with the announcement that a financial services firm is to create up to 300 new jobs in Limerick.

The jobs will be at Northern Trust, an international company which has been in Ireland since 1989. The firm opened its first office in Limerick in 2006, where it already employs more than 500 people.

The head of the Limerick office said that Northern Trust will be looking to recruit graduates from the local region, as well as experienced professionals from across the world and returning emigrants.

The jobs will be spread across a range of areas in the financial sector and will be created over the next three years.

Welcoming the news, Taoiseach Enda Kenny said it was “great news for Limerick and the mid-west region”.

Minister for Jobs Richard Bruton, who has met senior Northern Trust executives on a number of occasions since taking office, said that jobs are “now growing in every region”.
