Deloitte is to create 30 jobs through the establishment of a Galway office.

The new office, based in the Galway Financial Services Centre, will be Deloitte's fifth location in Ireland.

The professional services firm is recruiting for positions at all levels, from graduate through to senior management.

Deloitte Managing Partner Brendan Jennings said: "We are excited to announce the establishment of Deloitte's office in Galway.

"The city is a global centre of activity for medical technologies and ICT companies, in addition to having a strong indigenous business sector.

"What's more it's an ambitious and fast growing city. At Deloitte, we are similarly ambitious. I am confident that there is great opportunity, both for our firm and the business community in Galway."
