Citigroup to hire 250 people in Ireland

world Updated: Dec 09, 2010 13:43 IST

U.S. financial services group Citigroup will hire 250 people in Ireland next year in operations, funds, technology and product development, the company said on Thursday.

Citigroup already employs more than 2,200 workers in Dublin and Waterford, around 100 miles south of the capital, and has hired 300 people in the past 12 months.

The jobs announcement was a rare piece of good news for Ireland which has been rocked by a financial crisis that has seen unemployment soar, emigration return and its application for an 85 billion euros ($113 billion) bailout from the IMF and European Union last month.
