Over 200,000 more people at work than in 2012.

24th February, 2017

This week we reached a milestone in job creation. Over 200,000 more people are at work since we launched the Action Plan for Jobs in early 2012.

Unemployment has fallen to the lowest level since 2008, and, in 2016, 70% of new jobs created were outside Dublin.

While this is good progress, we are determined to reach our goal of full-employment by 2020 so that more people and families can see the benefits of a growing economy.
