Alliance Enterprise Spokesperson Seán Neeson MLA has welcomed the creation of 800 new jobs by Firstsource. 300 of the posts will be based in Derry and the others at an as yet unspecified location. The India-based company employs 17,000 people worldwide and Mr Neeson said the jobs boost was very encouraging given the current climate of rising fuel and energy bills.
Seán Neeson MLA said: “This is a very significant jobs boost for Northern Ireland.
“Given the difficult times in the global economy it’s good to see that more jobs are still being created in Northern Ireland.
“Local people and the local economy will be hit hard by rising fuel and energy prices, so it is encouraging to hear announcements like this one.”
