US Company ‘Jacobs’ has announced that they will be generating 200 new jobs over the coming two years, as it unveiled a €4.5 million investment in its office in Cork.
The company, which provides end-to-end solutions for infrastructure, biotechnology, pharmaceuticals, semi-conductor, data centres and manufacturing clients, plans to fill the positions in Dublin, Cork and Belfast.
The new roles will be professional services positions across a range of specialities, project and construction management, design, commissioning, qualification and validation.

A complete change of office layout reflects the business’ move to a collaborative working environment, in line with strategic team-based planning operations.
