Slalom is to create 300 new jobs in Ireland over the next five years. The announcement comes as the consultancy signs a lease on the high-profile Waterways House in Dublin’s Digital Docklands. The Irish operation, the company’s eighth international market, was established a year ago, and expects to have 60 employees by the year end.

The new roles will be in artificial intelligence (AI), Salesforce, data analytics, business advisory services, and AI-enabled change. The expansion reflects the company’s commitment to leveraging cutting-edge technology to drive business transformation and growth for its clients.

Jane Dawson-Howe, country managing director of Slalom in Ireland, said: “The demand from clients for the application of GenAI to drive innovation in their operations has contributed to the rapid expansion of our Irish business over the past year and will fuel our future growth.

“We are committed to investing in the Irish market, and our new office will act as the cornerstone of our efforts to deliver transformative AI solutions and advisory services to our clients. We are proud to be part of Dublin’s thriving tech community and look forward to contributing to its continued success. Our expansion in Ireland is not just about job creation; it’s about building better tomorrows for our clients, our employees, and the wider community.”

Michael Lohan, CEO, IDA Ireland, said: “Today’s announcement by Slalom confirms Ireland as a great location to commence and scale your business with our vibrant ecosystem and available talent pool. I want to congratulate Slalom and to assure them of IDA Ireland’s continued support as they expand their operations in Ireland in the years ahead.”
