Louise Phelan, vice president of Global Operations for Europe, Middle East and Africa for PayPal, said: “This is great news for Dundalk and the North East region. Dundalk is a very important site in our global operations for supporting our customers. We are already ahead of schedule in recruiting our first 1,000 teammates, thanks to our continued expansion, together with the high-calibre people we have already employed… In addition, we know that almost 1,000 indirect ‘spin-off’ jobs in other local businesses will be created as a result of PayPal’s investment in Dundalk.”
