The Texas-headquartered company said it will hire for new roles across a range of specialities including project and construction management, design and commissioning.
Jacobs, which now employs more than 1,100 staff in Ireland, first established a presence here in 1974 when it opened its first operation outside of the US.
“We opened our Dublin, Ireland, office 45 years ago to design and build a pharmaceutical plant,” said Jacobs chairman and chief executive Steve Demetriou. “Today, we continue to capture attractive growth opportunities for complex work in the advanced facilities and infrastructure markets that we are uniquely positioned to perform,” he added.
“The company has demonstrated a strong commitment to Cork where it is a valued employer whose longevity has been of substantial benefit to the local economy,” she said.
