We are back to our news peddaling ways today, after a few slow weeks. And today we start off with some good results from the North.
Firstsource (website ??) is an Indian-owned call centre company and have reported that they are well ahead of schedule in creating 1,000 jobs in Northern Ireland. Firstsource set up its first base in Belfast around a year ago and one in Derry in December 2006. They were promising to deliver 1,000 the jobs before 2008.
“We are well ahead of schedule with 950 jobs created so far,” said Sean Canning, Firstsource’s UK operations director as the company celebrated its first anniversary in Belfast.
