The financial services firm PwC is doubling its workforce in Galway by creating 35 new jobs over the next two years.

The expansion is part of an ambitious growth strategy that includes the financial services company moving its headquarters and workforce in Galway to state-of-the-art city centre premises at One Galway Central.

Ken Johnson, Senior Partner and Assurance Leader at PwC Galway said that this is a “strategic relocation” that reflects strong growth in the west.

“We see significant opportunities for PwC to support indigenous and FDI businesses as they exploit this growth potential.”

He added that a recent survey of Irish CEOs they carried out show that business leaders are cautiously optimistic about the future and are planing for growth.

“The new office, which gives us the capacity to double our team here in Galway to over 70 people in the next eighteen months to two years, provides a key platform for the delivery of our growth strategy for the West and our ability to support our clients in the Region as they deliver on their growth plans.”

“Our expansion also gives graduates the opportunity to work and live locally while having the benefits of developing a successful career in a global organisation.”
