PayPal Adds Staff in Ireland

Aug. 11, 2011

PayPal said it will create 200 jobs in Ireland after adding 150 new positions at the facility in the Dublin suburb or Blanchardstown earlier this year. The payment company said its European Centre of Excellence, which employs 1,350 overall, supports its fast growing European business. Louise Phelan, vice president for global customer services and EMEA merchant services, PayPal European operations, said: “PayPal has grown substantially in Ireland since it began here in 2003 and this is the second new jobs announcement we’ve had this year alone.” The Dublin-area facility opened in 2009 and manages all direct customer contact for PayPal’s businesses across Europe. Permanent positions to be filled at the European Centre of Excellence include roles in customer service, risk operations, financial operations, sales and account management for individuals fluent in English and a second European language.
