Novosco announces plans for 50 new jobs
Date: Wednesday, April 16, 2014
The announcement was made during a visit to the Belfast office by Enterprise, Trade and Investment Minister Arlene Foster. Announcing the investment Arlene Foster said: “Novosco is creating 50 high level jobs that will contribute almost £2 million a year to the economy. I understand that the company has ambitious growth targets in the GB market and I have no doubt that the additional skills brought through the recruitment of new staff will bring will play an important role in supporting that growth.
“Novosco is part of the thriving and rapidly expanding IT sector in Northern Ireland and is an excellent example of a fast growing locally owned company that has the potential to become a significant player. I commend the company on the success that it has achieved to date despite the challenges faced during the recent economic downturn. The new high level jobs are exactly what Northern Ireland needs to help rebalance the economy towards higher added value private sector activity.”
Patrick McAliskey, Managing Director of Novosco, said: “As we continue to grow our business with large organisations in GB, the Republic of Ireland and in Northern Ireland, we will require additional skills at our Belfast headquarters to help fulfil these contracts, including service desk engineers, implementation engineers, software consultants and network engineers. This will enable us to further expand our established business areas, including providing infrastructure and network services, in addition to growing new opportunities in areas like software development.”
