The jobs bonanza this week continues, this time up in Northern Ireland, where the digital marketing and contact centre provider Intelling has announced it is to create 205 jobs in its Belfast office.
Intelling had already begun recruitment earlier this year, having recruited 45 positions in management, supervisors and sales positions, but now further jobs are to be recruited to fill its new operating centre in Belfast.
The company, which has its headquarters in Manchester and which is one of the UK and Ireland’s largest digital marketing and contact centre providers, currently counts telecoms providers TalkTalk and O2 as clients.
The 205 jobs are to be spread across the next three years, with the company saying it will appeal to a wide range of people including those returning to work and those who have experienced a period of unemployment, as well as school leavers.
Northern Ireland’s Enterprise, Trade and Investment Minister, Jonathan Bell, said it is a vital boost for the region: “Intelling is an ambitious young company and I welcome its decision to choose Northern Ireland as the location for its expansion.
“This investment is positive news for our economy. It creates much-needed jobs that offer flexible employment and the opportunity to develop transferable skills.”
Phil Morgan, CEO of Intelling, added: “The availability of talent here and cost competitive environment, along with Invest NI support, made Northern Ireland the best choice for Intelling over alternative locations. We are delighted with how recruitment is progressing to date and aim to have 250 staff in place by 2018.”
