C&C Group To Create 25 New Jobs

Enterprise Minister Arlene Foster has announced that C&C Group is investing £1.2million in a Commercial Business Support Centre in Belfast.

The new centre, which is being assisted by Invest Northern Ireland, will be based in the group’s existing offices in the Boucher area of South Belfast and will provide 25 new jobs over the next two years.

Announcing the investment during a visit to the group’s offices, Arlene Foster said: "The C&C Group must be applauded for creating much needed jobs and for expanding their Belfast operation. It is testament to the company, which has been present in Belfast for over 100 years that it continues to develop and grow.

"The announcement is a substantial endorsement of Northern Ireland as a location for expert services and it will generate around £1.3million in salaries and wages over the next two years. The new centre will provide employment opportunities in an economically disadvantaged area and across a broad range of professional support services."

Invest NI has offered the company almost £250,000 towards its investment including training support, part funded by the European Regional Development Fund.
