A multinational pharmaceutical company, MSD, has made the announcement that it will be creating 330 new jobs over the next three years at two of its sites in Cork and Carlow.
The company will be investing €280 million and will see the expansion of production facilities to meet global demand for MSD's medicines and vaccines.
The Irish Independent report that roles available will include technical, engineering, biochemistry, biology, quality and operations positions.
More than 200 of the positions will be available in Cork, with the remaining roles up for grabs in Carlow.
Sanat Chattopadhyay, MSD executive vice president and president of MSD’s manufacturing division, said:
“The expansion of our presence in Ireland is a testament to the talent of our Irish employees. In recent years our Irish businesses have played an increasingly important role in the production of some of MSD’s most important breakthrough medicines for the global market."
