RECRUITMENT SOCIAL NETWORK LinkedIn is to double its Irish workforce after it bought a new international headquarters in the city centre.

The company already employs 600 people in Dublin, and says it plans to see this figure grow to 1,200 in the coming years.

The new international headquarters will be located at Wilton Place along Dublin’s Grand Canal, beside the company’s current offices, and construction is to begin next May. The building is expected to be completed in early 2017.

LinkedIn first opened an office in Dublin in March 2010 with three employees.

The company said it is now one of the leading employers in the Irish digital technology sector.

“This investment brings huge knock-on benefits for Ireland – including extra jobs in supply and service companies, as well as a huge boost to our reputation,” said Minister for Jobs Richard Bruton.

It is estimated that some 1.2 million people in Ireland have joined LinkedIn online.
