People will be hired in France, Germany, Ireland, Italy, the Netherlands, Poland and Spain. Facebook has said the move is a “vote of confidence” in the European tech sector. Despite the firm’s run-ins with regulators, Facebook even touted the EU’s “leading” policies on issues like freedom of speech, privacy and transparency.

The social media company already has a Reality Labs office in Cork, Ireland.

Facebook has also opened an Al research lab in France.

In 2019, Facebook partnered with the Technical University of Munich to create an Al ethics research center.

In 2017 Facebook opened a new office in London, bringing in 800 jobs to the capital.

The office was designed by the architect Frank Gehry and it includes seven floors and a public square called Rathbone Square.

The 247,000 square feet office is in Rathbone Place, just off bustling Oxford Street in central London.

Chancellor Philip Hammond at the time was one of the first to congratulate the company for opening the new office space in London.

He said: “It’s a sign of confidence in our country that innovative companies like Facebook invest here, and it’s terrific news that they will be hiring 800 more highly skilled workers next year.”
