Centra to create 300 jobs this year - Bruton

Jobs Minister Richard Bruton today welcomed the news that Centra is to create 300 new jobs across the country by the end of the year.

Centra currently employs 11,280 people across its network of stores, of which over 5,000 are full time roles.

The company has spent €241.1 million in local communities around its 460 stores in 2013.

Centra plans to expand its network of stores and to create and sustain approximately 300 additional jobs across the country by the end of the year.

Welcoming the announcement, Minister Bruton said:

 These jobs, and the millions spent on locally produced goods and services, has a significant knock-on economic benefit for communities, towns and villages across the country, and is the latest in a series of signs that domestic demand is starting to recover and economic growth is beginning to impact on every county. Crucial in this continuing recovery however is consumer demand, which is why Centra’s commitment to further investment and jobs around the country is welcome.
