Pharmaceutical Firm Create 150 Jobs

Pharmaceutical firm Shire has announced the opening of its new office in Ireland at the Miesian Plaza on Dublin's Baggot Street, with the creation of 150 jobs.

Shire's HQ office will move from its current location in Citywest, including the local commercial and technical operations (supply chain and IT) employees based there, who will move into Baggot Street in the coming months.

By the end of June 2017, approximately 300 Shire employees will be based at the Miesian Plaza. The leased space also provides additional accommodation as Shire's requirements increase over time.

An Taoiseach, Enda Kenny TD said: "I met the Shire CEO Dr Flemming Ørnskov at the World Economic Forum in Davos last January. I am glad they have chosen Ireland as the location for a further 150 jobs. This thriving company and their pioneering work in the field of bio-medicine is exactly the type of business we seek to attract. Our unemployment rate has gone from 15.2% to 6.4% and the Government will continue to work for a robust economy for all our people."
