The 100 new roles will range from graduates to experienced professionals in Dublin and Cork, with hybrid working options over the next two years, the company said.

Speaking on the merger, Rakesh Shaunak, Managing Partner and Chairman of MHA said: “Expanding into Ireland is a significant step in MHA’s strategic growth plans due to its strong trading ties and business connections with the UK and Europe, plus its thriving business community, and resilient economy.”
