I’m delighted to confirm that Wayfair, one of the world’s largest online retailers, is expanding in Galway and creating 200 new jobs which will comprise office-based and virtual/remote-working jobs.
Wayfair today marked the 10th anniversary of its multi-lingual European Operations Centre in Galway, Ireland with the announcement of plans to expand its workforce across the country. Through the launch of a virtual workforce to include more than 200 new jobs, Wayfair is reinforcing its longstanding commitment to the region. The company plans to add both virtual and office-based roles in Ireland as it scales its team to keep pace with the rapid growth of its e-commerce business in Europe.
The expansion by Wayfair in Galway reflects the wealth of skills, including language and ICT, in the West of Ireland. That companies like Wayfair have chosen Galway as a hub for their European operations is a boost not only for Galway but for the West and the Atlantic Economic Corridor. The launch too of a virtual workforce at Wayfair will ensure the benefits will be felt across the country with team members working in their communities. I wish the Wayfair team continued success in Ireland and globally.
