Facebook to quadruple size of Dublin international headquarters

DUBLIN (Reuters) - Facebook has taken on a long-term lease in Dublin which will quadruple the floor space at its international headquarters and allow the company to more than double its current staff of over 4,000.

Facebook said on Thursday the expansion would provide enough space for another 5,000 employees. Such an increase would make the U.S. company one of the largest multinational employers in Ireland next to the likes of Google and Apple, which each employ over 6,000 people around the country.

The social media company runs a number of global and regional teams across three office buildings in Dublin where it employs engineers, legal professionals, marketing and sales staff.

“We’re investing here for the long term,” Gareth Lambe, Head of Facebook Ireland said in a statement.

“This significant investment in a 14-acre campus with capacity for thousands more employees demonstrates our commitment to Ireland, our desire to grow our business here and continue to contribute to the economy.”

Irish Business Minister Heather Humphreys said the expansion represented a huge vote of confidence in Ireland, which aided by low corporate tax rates, counts foreign mulinationals like Facebook for around one-in-ten jobs in the fast-growing economy.

By acquiring the lease, Facebook is taking over the headquarters of Allied Irish Banks, which said previously it was moving from its offices near Dublin’s technology quarter.

Unemployment drops to new post-crash low of 5.3%
CSO figures show number classified as unemployed fell to 127,600 in November
about 2 hours ago
Eoin Burke-Kennedy


The Republic’s unemployment rate fell to 5.3 per cent in November, down from 5.4 per cent the previous month, according to the Central Statistics Office (CSO).
While there have been several upward revisions to the State’s jobless rate, the overall trend has been downward in keeping with the growth in employment.
The latest numbers show the number of people classified as unemployed fell by 2,500 to stand at 127,600 in November. This represented an annual decrease of 23,700 or 1.1 per cent.
Having peaked at 16 per cent at the height of the crash in 2012, the State’s jobless rate is now almost three points below the euro zone average of 8.1 per cent.
On current trends it will fall below 5 per cent next year, a rate which several agencies here equate to full employment.

In January 1981 John Lennon was at No 1, with Imagine. Some people <cough> don't know what that song is about apparently. They never fucking listen to the words

Number on Live Register down 15.5% on annual basis
The total number of people on the register stood at 199,669 in December
25 minutes ago
Charlie Taylor

The number of long-term claimants on the register last month was 79,542, down 18.8 per cent compared to the same month a year earlier

The number of people on the Live Register fell to its lowest since April 2008 last month, new figures from the Central Statistics Office show.
According to the latest data, there were 3,000 fewer people were on the register, which includes part-time, seasonal and casual workers who are entitled to jobseekers’ benefit or allowance. This decrease took the total number of people on the register to 199,669, down 15.5 per cent versus the same month a year earlier and is 27.6 per cent lower than in December 2016.
Separate CSO figures published earlier this week put the State’s jobless rate at 5.3 per cent for December, unchanged versus the prior month.
The Live Register data show the number of male claimants decreased by 22,915 or 16.9 per cent over the year to 112,414. The number of female claimants was down 13,684 or 13.6 per cent to 87,255.
Declined
The number of long-term claimants on the register last month was 79,542, down 18.8 per cent compared to the same month a year earlier. In addition, the number of casual and part-time workers declined by 18.4 per cent.
According to the figures there was a 19.3 per cent decline in the number of people aged under 25 on the register.
Minister for Employment Affairs and Social Protection Regina Doherty welcomed the latest data.
“While the Government has been successful in helping many people who lost their jobs or their businesses during the economic recession to get back working again, this New Year brings new challenges, including Brexit,” she said.

“We will work to provide the best possible environment for economic growth along with job retention and job creation in 2019, as well as introducing a renewed focus on the best possible approaches to enable those remaining numbers of long-term unemployed to find suitable work,” Ms Doherty added.


A bit more detail there above ^^^^^^^

We must be nearing capacity issues shortly.
