EY expands Cork services

Monday, 15th January, 2018 10:58am

Professional services firm Ernst & Young (EY) today announced the opening of its new expanded office space in Cork city.

The firm, which employs 199 people in the city, has opened a 1,653 square metre redesigned office space at Lapp’s Quay as part of its ongoing expansion. The expansion follows a 70 per cent increase in headcount at EY Cork in the last five years, and will support the firm’s ambition to grow to a headcount of at least 250 people by 2020.

Employing more than 2,400 people across the island of Ireland, EY has boosted its pool of talent in the past six months with positions created across its seven offices in Dublin, Belfast, Cork, Limerick, Waterford and Galway. The new Cork office follows double digit revenue growth of ten per cent in Cork in the 2017 fiscal year, and 18 per cent in the Munster region.

John Higgins, Managing Partner at EY Cork, said: “We are delighted to move into this new ultra-modern office with great facilities for all our team in Cork and also room for expansion into the future. The new office is designed using EY ‘office of the future’ design principles which incorporate flexible workspaces, meeting spaces and collaboration areas. Also, and importantly, we have completely upgraded our client suite and have taken advantage of the new technologies available which help run interactive meetings.”

EY Ireland Managing Partner Mike McKerr said the “outstanding” performance of EY Cork meant expansion in the region was necessary, adding: “The Cork team has played a crucial role in our growth as a firm over the last number of years, and we’ve already made a fantastic start in fiscal year 2018. The investment we’ve made in the physical space reflects our commitment to building on our established reputation in Cork and growing our footprint and client offering in Munster more broadly.”

Leading IT security company Smarttech also announced today that it is moving to a new office in Cork. The cyber security company is moving to a state-of-the-art premises at the Cork Airport Business Park.
