Alex White welcomes 300 new jobs in Sandyford

Today I welcomed the announcement that Sage is to employ 300 people in a new headquarters in Sandyford. Sage is the world’s leading small business accounting, payments and payroll solutions provider.

The announcement of 300 new jobs is fantastic news for South Dublin and further evidence that Ireland’s sustainable jobs-led recovery is bringing real benefits to our communities. This fast-growing technology-based company will be hiring people in marketing, digital sales and services, which will provide quality job and career opportunities in the area.
Today’s announcement builds on yesterday’s prudent Budget, which balances Labour’s twin objectives of safeguarding the recovery and raising living standards. Over 130,000 jobs have been created since 2012, bringing unemployment down to below 9.4% from a peak of over 15%.
