IBM has announced plans to create 800 new AI jobs in Ireland over the next three years as major technology companies continue to invest in the country.

State investment agency IDA Ireland announced on Thursday that IBM has announced it will hire an additional 800 people in Ireland to help create innovative software based on AI technology.

The move by the US software and consulting services provider is the biggest job announcement in the country's multinational sector this year.

IBM is one of Ireland's largest multinational employers with 3,000 employees. New roles will require employees to create innovative software based on generative artificial intelligence in high-growth areas such as security, automation and hybrid cloud.

RTE News reports that IBM cited the availability of skilled workers in Ireland as the main reason for the investment.

“As IBM continues to transform its businesses with hybrid cloud and AI, attracting, developing and retaining talent remains a top priority,” said James Cavanaugh, IBM's senior vice president and CFO.

The Irish economy is getting its latest boost as other world-renowned names including Alphabet, Amazon, Apple, Facebook, IBM, Intel, Microsoft, Oracle, Salesforce and Tencent continue their major operations in the country.

As IDA Ireland points out, the EU member state is home to 16 of the world's 20 largest technology companies and the top 3 business software providers.
