PwC last week celebrated the relocation of its Galway office to city centre state-of-the-art premises at One Galway Central.
The move is part of PwC’s national ambitious growth strategy – PwC Galway plans to more than double its workforce to 70 people over the next two years. And this unrivalled quality accommodation offers PwC the perfect opportunity for these exciting expansion plans.
Launching the new office, Enda Kenny, TD and former Taoiseach, 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,” he said.
Speaking about the relocation, Feargal O’Rourke, PwC Ireland Managing Partner, said Galway and the West are a strategic element of the firm’s ambitious growth strategy.
“Our move to One Galway Central demonstrates our belief in the Galway market and our firm’s commitment to further invest in the region. It is a very important development for PwC which enables us to grow, provide value to our clients and develop and retain key talent.”
Ken Johnson, Senior Partner and Assurance Leader, PwC Galway, 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.
“The new office, which gives us the capacity to more than double our team here in Galway to over 70 people in the next eighteen months to two years, provides a key platform for the delivery of our growth strategy for the West and our ability to support our clients in the Region as they deliver on their growth plans. In the digital era our new state-of-the-art tech enabled and centrally located office provides an attractive work environment where our clients and people can work together. Our expansion also gives graduates the opportunity to work and live locally while having the benefits of developing a successful career in a global organisation,” added Mr Johnson.
“Our new office at One Galway Central delivers a building that is consistent with our brand – excellent facilities for great clients and for top class talent. Having a quality building and a quality offering is what the market demands in this new digital era. One Galway Central provides the perfect expansion platform for PwC Galway and we are delighted to serve this important market,” he concluded.
