The company specialises in human resources – including roles such as payroll administration and application management services – with the OneSource seeking tech graduates with three-to-five years’ experience.

According to Northern Ireland’s Enterprise Minister Jonathan Bell, the company chose Derry because of the availability of a skilled workforce, local higher education systems, quality of life and cost of living, as well as the financial package on offer.
