‘PayPal’ Forced To Import Staff With Language Skills From Overseas

PayPal, the online payment company, which has a base in Dundalk, Ireland is having to recruit staff from overseas due to a lack of Irish staff with language skills.  The multinational company is finding it difficult to find Irish staff with the necessary language skills and in particular for German, Dutch and Nordic languages. The Global Operations Vice-President at PayPal said that Ireland suffered from a ‘deficiency’ in Irish workers with second languages.

PayPal is able to recruit the staff it requires but at an additional cost to the company. The multinational company is having to pay foreign staff their relocation, board and travel costs which would not have been the case if the Irish education system already had a language learning system in place.
