Deloitte, the professional services group, is to expand its operation across the island by creating 338 new roles in the North and 100 new positions plus 200 graduate opportunities in the South.
It also intends to create 100 under-graduate roles including co-operative work place programmes and summer internships in the Republic over the coming year. The positions will be available across a range of services including technology, pensions and actuarial consulting, and finance.
Jackie Henry, senior partner of Deloitte Belfast, said the North had been selected as the location for a major investment programme against “intense competition” from across the UK and other global sites.
Deputy First Minister Martin McGuinness added: “This announcement of new jobs in Deloitte will make a significant contribution to the local economy worth over £11m annually. These jobs will pay above the local private sector average providing a considerable injection into the local economy and creating opportunities for experienced professionals, graduates and school leavers.
