Apple leads charge as over 2,600 jobs announced in November

Thanks in large part to Apple’s decision to once again expand its Cork operations, well over 2,600 STEM jobs were announced in November, with little nationwide spread.

Dublin and Cork were the main beneficiaries this month, with Apple’s 1,000-strong expansion added to that of Voxpro’s decision last week to add 350 to its workforce in the rebel county, taking the total figure of new roles there to around 1,400 in November.

Of course, often, the larger the announcement, the longer the lead-in time, with Apple’s recruitment drive looking like it will come to fruition in 2017.

But Voxpro’s expansion is part of what is starting to look like an annual event, with continued growth within the support company. Elsewhere in Cork, PMD (11), Bluemetrix (15) and Spearline (20) spread the love with their own recruitment drives.

In Dublin, around a dozen companies hit the headlines with their own jobs announcements, most notably on 4 November (a great date, it must be said) when, amid the madness of the Web Summit, six companies sought 320 staff between them.

Squarespace (160) led the charge, while (50), Asana (30), Wave2Wave (30), Pond5 (30) and Primary Integrations (20) each made their own significant moves.

Outside of Cork and Dublin, though, it was slim pickings.
