It might seem a bit early to talk about Christmas, but the Dublin City Business Improvement District (BID) announced the opening of a Christmas Market in St Stephen’s Green last week.
According to Richard Guiney, the CEO of Dublin City BID, "It's not unusual for us (The BID) to have a conversation about when Santa will be arriving before Easter".
The Dublin Christmas Market took place over the past 9 years in the Docklands. This new market in St Stephen’s Green will be the first launched in the city centre and will be open between the 13th of November and the 23rd of December.
St Stephen’s Green market will have 60 stalls located in traditional wooden chalets between Grafton Street and Merrion road.
It aims to attract 600.000 people in footfall and could bring up to a €20m boost for the traders.
At this occasion around 150 seasonal jobs will be created to support event.
BioMarin Manufacturing will launch 50 new positions in its Dublin Global Commercial Operations Hub. The Operations Hub has the responsibility for strategic decision and international supply chain management.
The jobs on offer will be in different positions such as accounting, finance, customer service and marketing.
This new expansion is explained by the fact that the VIMIZIM created by BioMarin Manufacturing, a soluble solution for perfusion that is indicated to treat metabolic disorders called Mucopolysaccharidosisby has been approved by the European Commission.
You can keep updated and check the position available on their website.
The Dublin Writers Festival will take place between the 17th and the 25th of May this year. At this occasion, more than 50 internationals writers will come in the city to read, discuss, argue and much more.
Described by the press as “boasting a stunning array of top international literary talent” and “the country’s most successful and easily the best annual literary event”, it will be a shame to miss the event.All the readings and debates will take place in different places in the city.

The minister for Tourism Leo Vatadkar has a defined idea: Dublin can attract more tourists.
At the seminar held in Killiney last 2nd March, Vatadkar stated:
“It is my view that Dublin and the Dublin region can do better still. There is absolutely no reason why we can’t have as many international visitors coming to Dublin as Barcelona does every year.”
After a decrease in the number of tourists, the capital of the Republic witnesses an encouraging rise due to various government initiatives. Further investments for building new hotels and for promotion of major and minor touristic venues are expected.
A tourism increase means not only more jobs in the restaurant and hotel industry, but a general rise in all job opportunities.
Meanwhile, the Dublin branch of City Sightseeing Bus, the company that drives tourists along the most important and panoramic city sights, announced the creation of 46 new jobs. Any specific need to apply? Loving Dublin, according to David McConn, the company CEO.
City Sightseeing Bus is looking for drivers, guides, mechanics, sales staff, professional and passionate people who can sell the city and increase the number of visitors in the capital.
