The retail industry dominated this year’s list, with the top 25 companies including some of Ireland’s most recognised high street names such as Next, Boots, Debenhams, Penneys, Brown Thomas and Marks & Spencer.


Unsurprisingly, given the large numbers employed in global technology firms in Ireland, the technology industry was also strongly represented on the list, with employers Apple and Google featuring alongside Dell in the Top 5 employers, evidence of the competitive salaries, generous perks and opportunities for career progression on offer. HP and Intel were also listed among the top 10.


At Dell, we work hard to create a welcoming workplace where employees can come together to work and play and to carve out a rewarding and valuable career for themselves.

The food and drink industry was also strongly represented by the likes of Supervalu, McDonald’s, Spar and Centra. Following a high-profile, award winning recruitment campaign last year, the Irish Defence Forces were a new entry to the ranking this year at number 6.
