Deloitte To Create 300 Extra Belfast Jobs

Deloitte, the professional services firm, has said it will create an extra 300 jobs in Belfast before the end of 2020.

Most of the new Belfast roles will be within Deloitte’s technology business with vacancies in areas such as data science and analytics, cyber security and digital engineering. It is thought that some of the vacancies could command salaries in excess of £30,000.

Just two years ago, Deloitte said that it expected to employ 700 staff in Belfast by 2019, but the company is ahead of schedule with its recruitment in the city, and now forecasts that it will have 1,000 staff in Belfast by the end of 2020, more than doubling its current headcount in the city. If the firm fulfils that forecast then Belfast will become Deloitte’s second largest base after London.

Deloitte’s already has two offices in Belfast, employing around 460 members of staff. That number will swell past 500 this September when the firm adds a further 43 Belfast entry level jobs for apprentices in the city. The company is also in talks which could see it add a third office base in Belfast in the near future.

Explaining why they are further increasing their headcount in Belfast, Chairman of Deloitte for the UK, Nick Owen, said: “That is testament to the success that the team here has enjoyed since announcing significant expansion plans and the breadth of expertise within the business. This commitment by Deloitte reflects the confidence we have in Belfast as a great place to do business and a hotbed of talent, particularly for graduates and school leavers.”

“It also demonstrates our continued commitment to social mobility as a core part of our talent strategy and our desire to continue to further deliver on this commitment in Northern Ireland,” added Mr Owen.

Northern Ireland’s First Minister, Arlene Foster, agreed, saying: “Deloitte is making this commitment based on the talent and quality of staff in Belfast and it is a clear indicator of the confidence that the firm has in Northern Ireland.”

Deputy First Minister Martin McGuinness added: “Deloitte is already a significant employer in the north of Ireland and I welcome this further commitment to create even more high quality jobs. Deloitte is delivering on its recruitment plans and is also in the process of securing new grade A office accommodation.”
