Novosco to double Belfast office space, creating 21 jobs

14 Oct 2016

Novosco, one of Northern Ireland’s largest cloud computing providers, is set to more than double its current Belfast office space, resulting in the creation of 21 jobs.

Currently employing 140 staff, Novosco has a number of offices spread across Ireland and England, and counts itself as one of the former’s fastest-growing tech companies.

Having recently acquired IT security solutions company NetDef in a seven-figure deal, the company has also recently won a series of major contracts with organisations across the UK and Ireland to provide cloud services.

Now, Novosco has revealed it has secured a deal to acquire 11,000sq ft of office space in Belfast as part of a £1m investment, ahead of an expected expansion in turnover of 18pc this year.

Based in the new Concourse 3 building at Catalyst – formerly NI Science Park – the large facility includes a customised staff gym, a library, a specially-designed staff coffee dock, and a virtual reality room for staff entertainment.

With this new project more than doubling its original office space, Novosco has announced it is now looking to fill 21 roles within the company.

Taking inspiration from the US

Novosco’s managing director Patrick McAliskey said that the new office space and jobs should take the company to the next level.

“We wanted to create a unique office environment to support our efforts to recruit and retain the very best,” he said.

“We’ve taken inspiration from what the absolute leading companies in the world in places like the US are doing. We don’t think there are any other offices in Northern Ireland quite like what we have created and we feel that they will play a crucial role in the continuing growth of our business.”
