    Default Apple Reveals Plan to Bring 500 More Jobs to European Corporate Headquarters



    Apple plans to bring 500 new jobs to the company’s European headquarters in Cork, Ireland.

    Apple has had a substantial presence in Cork for more than 30 years and currently employs 2,800 people at the European headquarters located in the city. The additional 500 employees will be staffed in a new office block that Apple plans to build in the next 18 months.

    The Cork headquarters oversee Apples’s supply chain throughout Europe, the Middle East and Africa. Apple assembles Mac Pro desktops at the location as well.

    "The announcement that Apple, one of the world's leading companies, is expanding its operations in Ireland and creating 500 new jobs is a huge boost for the country. It is a great testament to the company's workforce, a great vote of confidence in the future of our economy, and it shows what is possible fore Ireland at the heart of a stable Europe," — Richard Bruton. Irish Job Minister.
    In case you missed the story earlier this week, Cork was the site of a demonstration staged by Greenpeace to protest Apple’s use of coal powered electricity to support its iCloud service.

    Apple’s HQ in Cork was the company’s first base established outside of the U.S. mainly because of the low corporate tax rate of 12.5 percent.
