An announcement that Rigney Dolphin is building a centre for customer service will lead to the creation of 297 new jobs within the next three years, it has been claimed.
The Waterford-based consumer relationship management service has received a £1.2 million grant from Invest Northern Ireland (NI) to support the project, which will see £4 million being generated annually.
"Rigney Dolphin will offer new employment and career development opportunities and deliver a considerable contribution to the local economy," stated Arlene Foster, enterprise minister for the country.
Chief executive of Rigney Dolphin Celine Fitzgerald stated the new facility will allow the company to work more closely with its NI customers.
He added it represents an important strategic development for the business as it looks to expand its UK consumer base.
This latest news comes after employment minister for the UK Chris Grayling stated it is vital that the economy is placed on a sure footing in order to allow new jobs to be created.All articles
