Google, the leading internet search engine operator, has announced the creation of a further 500 or so jobs at its Dublin office - which acts as its Europe, Middle-East and Africa (EMEA) headquarters. The jobs, which will come on stream immediately, will increase the workforce to 1,400. All of the new highly-skilled positions - which will cover engineering and customer services - will be aimed at third-level graduates. Google's Dublin office is the company's second largest base, only smaller than the group headquarters in California.
