Boost for Co Down as 106 jobs are created

26 Oct 2010

A US technology company has announced it will create more than 100 jobs in Co Down, Northern Ireland.

The 106 jobs, which will be created in a European centre in Northern Ireland, are being created by software and consulting group First Derivatives. The company already has an office in Newry, Co Down.

This expansion will see it develop its international operations and its US-based subsidiary Market Research Partners (MRP) will offer the jobs in Down and generate an annual salary range of almost £3m.

The announcement follows US Secretary of State Hillary Clinton’s US/Northern Ireland economic conference, where many major US corporations were in attendance.

The Philadelphia-based company, whose client list includes Microsoft, will fill the 106 posts over the next three years.
