Judith Cochrane MLA said: “This announcement will be a big boost to the Northern Ireland economy. PricewaterhouseCoopers is an internationally renowned company, so to see them expanding their workforce in Belfast is a big vote of confidence in our economy. It is further evidence of our economic recovery following the global financial downturn.
“We need to expand our private sector if we are to grow our economy, so we need to encourage more companies like PWC to bring jobs to Northern Ireland.
“We have had several positive jobs announcements from different firms in recent months and I hope to see more jobs coming to Northern Ireland in the future.”
