Audit, tax and advisory firm Mazars opened its new Galway office and announced that it will create up to 30 new jobs over a three-year period, doubling the headcount of the office from 30 to 60. Mazars first established in Galway in 2004 and its new office, spanning 6,000 sq. feet, is located at Mayoralty House in Galway city. The office move has come as a response to continued growth within the business and recruitment has begun to fill the new positions in the outsourced accounting business.
Welcoming the announcement Minister for Business, Enterprise and Innovation Heather Humphreys TD said,
Ireland is now a world leader in professional services and many of the top companies in this sector are based here. This announcement is a further example of the success of the Government’s commitment under the Regional Action Plans for Jobs to ensure we have the right conditions in place to facilitate the creation of quality jobs in regional locations.
Mark Kennedy, Managing Partner, Mazars commented;
Mazars Ireland is one of the fastest growing professional services firms and the further expansion of our Galway operation is testament to our work and the services we provide as a business. Earlier this year we announced the continued growth of our Limerick business and I am delighted to see the Galway office enjoying similar success.
Commenting on the announcement Martin Shanahan, CEO, IDA Ireland said; “Mazars’ decision to expand its footprint in Galway to service its global clients is very welcome. The company is a great addition to the thriving business ecosystem in the West.”
