Paddy Power to create 600 jobs in Dublin by 2015

Hundreds of positions will be created as part of the bookmaker’s international online expansion.

THE TAOISEACH IS to announce the creation of 600 new jobs at the official opening of bookmaker Paddy Power’s new headquarters in Clonskeagh, Dublin, later today.

The announcement will bring to 800 the number of jobs recently announced by the group – almost 200 of which have already been filled.

The positions to be announced later this morning will be in areas such as e-commerce, technology, social media, quantitative research, risk management and online marketing and will support Paddy Power’s “international online expansion”, the company said. All new jobs will be filled by the end of 2015.

The group has reported strong international online growth in recent years, allowing it to expand into the UK, Australia and Italy.

Paddy Power currently employs 2,172 people in Ireland.

The new jobs announced today are being created without the requirement of investment support from the State.
