PwC has announced the relocation of its Galway office to city centre state-of-the-art premises at One Galway Central. As part of the relocation, PwC Galway plans to more than double its workforce to 70 people over the next two years.
PwC say the new premises provide a key platform for the delivery of the companies’ growth strategy for the West and its ability to support clients in the Region as they deliver on their growth plans.
In the digital era, PwC believe the new state-of-the-art tech enabled and centrally located office provides an attractive work environment where clients and people can work together. The expansion also gives graduates the opportunity to work and live locally while having the benefits of developing a successful career in a global organisation.
Launching the new office, TD and former Taoiseach, Enda Kenny said, "Galway and the West are very important for Ireland’s continued economic growth and job opportunities. As part of our National Planning Framework – Ireland 2040 – developing a strong regional economy will be critical to our national economic success. And I’m delighted that the development of the M18 motorway has created a gateway to the entire Western region opening up new employment and investment opportunities. And with a highly talented skills’ pool, we can see this new investment right here in Galway with multinationals, including medtech, and technology companies as well as SMEs, establishing in the region. It is great to see organisations such as PwC helping drive this success."
Senior Partner and Assurance Leader at PwC Galway, Ken Johnson added, "This is a strategic relocation for our clients and our people. Ireland’s continued robust economic performance is driving growth in the West, despite external uncertainties such as Brexit. We see significant opportunities for PwC to support indigenous and FDI businesses as they exploit this growth potential. Our recent Irish CEO Survey indicates that business leaders are cautiously optimistic about the future and are planning for growth."
