Flutter Entertainment has officially reopened its international headquarters in Dublin following a €15.5m investment, which it says is to become a centre of excellence in technology and innovation.
The 164,000 square foot space, which spans seven floors at Belfield Office Park, will house 1,700 individuals across key functions such as sports trading, technology, product development and innovation, marketing, HR, and customer operations, with plans for further growth.
The renovated HQ also includes a range of accessibility and sustainable features which aim to make the work environment healthier for colleagues, with workspaces designed to cater to the needs of a hybrid working world.
It is anticipated that the space will help to drive innovation across the group through the development of digital products for consumers across the world, while supporting skilled jobs in Dublin and contributing significantly to the local and national economies.
“Our new look global headquarters in Dublin encapsulates Flutter’s vision for the future of work. We have made a significant investment in this modern, agile, and flexible workspace, and are excited for our colleagues based here to experience all it has to offer” commented Pádraig Ó Ríordáin, chief legal officer and group commercial director of Flutter and the executive lead for the Dublin office.
“We are proud to be headquartered in Ireland and we look forward to investing in and growing our employee base in Ireland across a wide range of disciplines and to working with and supporting our local communities for many years to come.”
Separately, the Market x Flutter convenience store on site is Ireland’s first fully frictionless shop, where more than 90 cameras and artificial intelligence technology combine in a bid to increase speed and convenience.
