Positions will further boost area as technology hub
 
The Minister for Transport, Tourism & Sport and Dublin West TD Leo Varadkar has welcomed the creation of 200 new jobs at the PayPal centre in Blanchardstown, which he said will further enhance the area’s status for information technology companies.
 
“I’m delighted that PayPal has decided to further expand operations at its European Centre of Excellence in Blanchardstown with 200 new jobs. These new positions will bring the company’s workforce in the area to more than 1,500, and reinforce Blanchardstown’s growing status as an information technology hub.
 
“The new jobs are particularly welcome in these difficult times, and are just the sort of new positions we need to get the economy back to strong growth. The Government is firmly committed to job creation and has already introduced key measures, like the Jobs Initiative.
 
“I’m particularly pleased that Blanchardstown has been able to attract global companies like PayPal and eBay, and I hope this move will attract further high-calibre jobs to the area.”
