Technology firm creates 100 jobs

Concentrix Technologies is to create 100 jobs in Belfast in software development

A technology company has announced plans to create 100 jobs in Belfast, with the positions being in software development in Concentrix Technologies.

Invest Northern Ireland has offered the company £749,000 of support to secure the jobs.

Concentrix Technologies, which is part of the international SYNNEX Corporation, provides businesses with advanced customer relationship management (CRM) software.

Enterprise Minister Arlene Foster welcomed the move.

She said: "Having met with Concentrix during my recent trade and investment mission to San Francisco, I was able to hear precisely what the company's plans were for Northern Ireland."

"These jobs will deliver in excess of £4 million annually in salaries. This is proof that Northern Ireland remains one of the most competitive in Europe for inward investors seeking talented people in a cost competitive location."

Chris Caldwell, President, Concentrix Corporation, said: "Our European operations service a fast growing, dynamic market so when looking for potential locations for our expansion, Northern Ireland was immediately one of our main options.

"The support provided by Invest NI, the strength of the ICT sector and the resources on offer make our decision an easy one.

"We have already commenced recruitment at a range of levels from graduate to highly experienced software professionals and hope to have the first 20 developers in place by January 2013."

Concentrix Technologies' Belfast operation will be based at Lanyon Place.
