Judith Cochrane MLA said: “This is fantastic news that one of the ‘Big Four’ has chosen Northern Ireland in which to create nearly 500 jobs. It is a further indication that international companies view Northern Ireland as a good place to do business.
“This announcement is taking place as a result of the investment in our skills base in Northern Ireland. EY are creating exactly the type of high value jobs that will really develop our economy. I want to pay tribute to the work of the Department for Employment and Learning who are ensuring that we have a competitive skills base which is integral to job creation efforts in Northern Ireland.”
