Technology consultancy Slalom has announced the official opening of its office in Dublin. The new hub will service the firm’s clients across Ireland and Europe.

Jane Dawson-Howe, who has been named Country Leader for Slalom Ireland, commented, “At Slalom, people are at the core of everything we do. We base our decision-making and strategy on creating meaningful impact for our clients, to allow them to connect more deeply with their customers. Our presence in Dublin allows us to reach more businesses who want to achieve better outcomes – an exciting prospect for us all – and will be a home for a team of industry leading consultants who are truly experts in their fields.”

Dawson-Howe joined Slalom in April 2023, bringing 30 years of experience to the firm both in and out of consulting. She will now oversee the launch and growth of Slalom’s new Dublin team and office, while working to build relationships with clients across Ireland and Europe. This will include overseeing plans to hire more than 50 team members over the course of Slalom’s first year.

Speaking on the firm’s arrival, Minister for Enterprise, Trade and Employment Simon Coveney, noted, “I warmly welcome Slalom’s announcement that they are opening their first Irish office in Dublin as part of their European expansion. This investment will create 50 jobs initially, with plans to significantly increase this figure over the next few years.”

The firm has been recommended as one of the top places to work in consulting, by the Great Places to Work Institute.
