Written answers (Question to Jobs)

Enterprise Ireland’s mission is to partner with entrepreneurs, Irish businesses and the research and investment communities to develop Ireland’s international trade, innovation, leadership and competitiveness with the ultimate objective of job creation. Enterprise Ireland clients are a vital source of employment in every county in Ireland.

In the context of Enterprise Ireland’s investment programme it is worth noting that in 2013, 12,532 full-time jobs were created by Enterprise Ireland assisted companies, which is an increase of 2% on the number of EI assisted jobs created in 2012.
