Over 1,000 New Belfast Jobs With US Tech Firm Concentrix

US tech firm Concentrix has announced that it will create over 1,000 new Belfast jobs, more than doubling its presence in the Northern Ireland city over the next three years.

Roles on offer at Concentrix, whose client list includes companies like Amazon, PayPal, Channel 4, BT and Microsoft, will include a mix of call centre vacancies and opportunities for software developers. Average starting salaries for successful applicants to the new Belfast jobs will be somewhere in the £15,000 to £20,000 pay region, and some roles will require candidates who are proficient in more than one language.

Concentrix has had a base in Belfast for 3 years already and employs around 800 staff in a variety of roles, but the new expansion plans will see the company injecting further investment of over £35 million into the city, creating hundreds of new jobs in Belfast in the process.

Speaking about the career prospects available in the city, Vice President of Concentrix, Philip Cassidy, said that there was scope for the right candidates to rise up the ladder in the company if they join the business in Belfast.

“The career prospects have been very good for people within the business. There are people that have come in at a relatively low level within the business and have moved through the ranks through to senior management positions and we would encourage that,” said Mr Cassidy.

Announcing the new jobs yesterday, the First Minister of Northern Ireland, Peter Robinson, said the Concentrix investment was a ‘tremendous boost for our local economy’ and excellent news for the region as a whole. Mr Robinson added that the move sent a big signal to other potential investors that Northern Ireland is a ‘great place to work, live and invest.’

Adding that Concentrix had looked into other potential cities before choosing Belfast, Enterprise Minister Arlene Foster, said: “Investments such as this provide valuable job opportunities for a variety of people, particularly those returning to work, those who have experienced a period of unemployment and young people.”
