Consultancy company Ernst and Young has announced 300 new jobs at its offices in Dublin, Cork, Limerick, Waterford and Belfast. It is reported that the company is seeing new opportunities as businesses sought advice on making savings and recovering from the financial crisis. Half of the new employees will be graduates with degrees in engineering, IT, legal, business, accounting and finance. There will also be vacancies for accountants and executives in tax, fraud investigation and dispute services. The recruitment drive will increase Ernst & Young's 1,100-strong workforce by one third.
