Novosco To Create 50 Extra Jobs

Local Alliance Belfast Councillor Maire Hendron has welcomed the announcement that IT company Novosco will be creating 50 extra jobs at their base in the Northern Ireland Science Park at Queen's Island in Belfast.

Cllr Maire Hendron said: "This is very welcome news that 50 extra jobs will be created in Belfast. It is great to see more high value jobs coming to Northern Ireland. It is a further boost to our economy and is another positive sign of economic growth.

"Northern Ireland is building a reputation as a good place for IT companies to invest in. I hope this will encourage more young people to take up IT subjects at school and University as there are job opportunities for them in this sector.

"While Novosco are creating jobs, another IT company, Vello systems, have announced that they will be temporarily reducing their staff. While this will be a difficult time for those 15 staff made redundant, the announcement by Novosco shows that there are other opportunities in the IT sector in Northern Ireland. I hope they will quickly find employment elsewhere."
