IT services provider P2V Systems has announced a doubling of its Lisburn operation by the end of 2018, adding 12 new jobs to the two recently filled.
With salaries totalling around £500,000 between them, the expanded roles will allow the company to “win more business”, according to Stephen McCann, MD of P2V.
“Last year was very productive in winning new business and new customers and, as a result, our turnover has jumped by over 100pc,” he said.
“We intend to capitalise on current opportunities within the [British] market and these new positions will help us form a strong team to drive the business forward.”
Crediting Invest NI’s support in helping the company get this expansion across the line, McCann said core growth in the UK and right into Ireland is the priority now.
“We are also looking to new markets after recent visits to Amsterdam, Dubai and Toronto,” he said, with almost £100,000 grant money provided by Invest NI for this development.
“P2V Systems has established robust business partnerships with BT, HP and others and delivered exemplary services to customers on behalf of these partners,” said NI Economy Minister Simon Hamilton.
“With an average salary of £35,000, the new roles will provide opportunities for IT consultants, account managers, business development managers and marketing executives.
“Currently, 30pc of the company’s sales are generated outside Northern Ireland. With an enhanced workforce, P2V Systems will have the resources needed to secure the new business it has identified in its target markets.”
Earlier today (30 August), US technology firm Se2 announced plans to double its workforce in Waterford as it officially opened its Irish office.
Se2 – a third-party technology administrator for the insurance industry – will be growing its workforce from 70 to 135, with the jobs to be rolled out over the next three to four years.
According to Janet Dulohery, the company’s VP and head of human resources, the recruitment process will seek out “ambitious people, who are similarly enthused about making a real impact on the US life and pension industry”.
Elsewhere, 20 new jobs are winging their way to Limerick as part of a €1.2m investment by Ripplecom, following an upgrade of its core and backhaul networks.
