Naomi Long MLA said: “This announcement provides real hope at this extremely tough time. Job losses can have a devastating knock-on effect on the community and local businesses, and this development will soften the blow following last week’s news.
“This news is extremely positive; however, I feel for the remaining staff who are still seeking employment following last week’s announcement at Central Group Services.
Alliance Councillor in the Dundonald area, Judith Cochrane said: “Given the disappointing news in recent times as regards redundancies in Northern Ireland, I am very pleased that some good news is forthcoming.
“I hope that Contract Services NI will be able to expand in the future and that extra opportunties may be created.”
