Ebay, the online trading platform, is expanding in Dublin with the creation of at least 300 new jobs. The new positions will bring the company's workforce to more than 1,200 at Blanchardstown in the north of the city. The growth comes just two years after eBay established a customer support centre in Dublin, and three years after the eBay-owned online payments company PayPal, set up its international headquarters in the same campus.

The new staff, who should be in place by the end of the year, will include multilingual employees in areas such as customer support, financial processing, risk operations, risk underwriting, compliance and finance. Senior managers will also be hired.
