Apple will create 500 jobs in Cork

THE Technology giant Apple will create 500 jobs in Cork, it has announced this morning.

The multinational corporation, famed for its iPhone, iPods and Mac computers, will expand operations in its European headquarters over the next 18 months.

It is believed the expansion could boost the firm’s Cork work force to around 3,300. The company is expected to build a three-storey office block next to its current base in Hollyhill to accommodate the extra staff.

Positions available are likely to be highly skilled in areas of technical support and online services. Jobs Minister Richard Bruton worked closely with the IDA, the organisation responsible for attracting investment into Ireland, in negotiating with Apple to deliver the jobs. “The announcement that Apple, one of the world’s leading companies is expanding its operations in Ireland and creating 500 new jobs, is a huge boost for the country,” said Mr Bruton. “It is a great testament to the workforce, a great vote of confidence in the future of our economy, and it shows what is possible for Ireland at the heart of a stable Europe.”
