Ryanair to create more than 50 new IT jobs at its new headquarters.

The low fares carrier is recruiting web developers, designers, analysts, software engineers and email specialists to transform its website and create a new mobile app, to be launched in the summer.

Budding candidates will meet Ryanair boss Michael O’Leary, his chief marketing officer Kenny Jacobs, director of IT Eric Neville, and head of web development Dara Brady at a “web stars” open day event in Swords, north Dublin, on Saturday, February 8.

Registration on www.ryanair.com/openday closes at 6pm on Monday, February 3.

Ryanair’s Robin Kiely said: “As Ryanair rolls-out our new digital strategy, we’re hoping to recruit over 50 IT and digital professionals to drive these revolutionary developments.

“We want to meet the best of the best and are holding a web open day at our new Dublin offices at Airside.”

The airline previously revealed it plans to spend about €35m this year on advertising, website improvements and other travel products targeting groups and business travellers.

The company has moved 500 staff from Dublin airport and a city centre office to the new premises, which opened today.
