IKEA says less than twenty jobs will be lost in its Irish operation as part of what it's calling a transformation plan.
Over the next two years, the flat-pack furniture company will cut 7,500 jobs across 30 countries.
A spokesperson has described the impact on the Irish arm of the business as 'minimal'.
IKEA says it will work closely with all staff to support them during the changes.
Claudia Marshall, IKEA Ireland Market Manager said “We are transforming our business to better meet the needs of our customers and be more convenient and affordable to more people."
"Building on many years of growth and as part of this transformation, we are assessing all parts of the organisation and simplifying to ensure that we stay relevant in the eyes of consumers."
"The impact on the Irish business is minimal and at this stage we anticipate that over the next 2 years, potentially less than 20 jobs out of the 730 in Ireland may be made redundant."
"We will work closely with all our co-workers to support them during this period of change", she said.
