Enterprise Minister Arlene Foster met representatives of the company recently. "I am pleased such high quality jobs have been secured for local people," she said.

"These jobs will deliver in excess of £4m annually in salaries. This is proof that Northern Ireland remains one of the most competitive places 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."
