Fujitsu Announces 192 New Jobs in Northern Ireland with an Investment of £12m

Fujitsu UK & Ireland

London, December 10, 2013

This is being made possible with an anticipated investment of £12 million from Fujitsu over the next three years as well as over £990,000 of support from Invest Northern Ireland towards the fulltime positions. The move will see Fujitsu establish a new Business Services Centre at its existing Timber Quay site and will bring the total number of Fujitsu employees in Northern Ireland to over 1000 across four locations in Belfast, Antrim and Derry. The announcement was made at a visit to the Timber Quay offices today by the Northern Ireland First Minister, Enterprise Minister and other stakeholders.

With over 35 years presence in Northern Ireland, this is the fourth investment Fujitsu has announced here within the last seven years and will bring the total to over £36 million invested in the Northern Ireland economy during this period. Already the largest Japanese employer in the UK and Ireland Fujitsu works with public and private sector organisations to harness the power of technology, to help keep the UK and Ireland running smoothly and safely.

The new positions will include a range of critical business support roles including administration, financial, procurement and human resources that will support Fujitsu’s internal operations as well as technical and software orientated roles that will support ongoing work for a wide range of private and public sector customers across the UK and Europe. It is anticipated that recruitment will begin in the New Year.

Speaking about the investment Greg McDaid, Client Managing Director - Northern Ireland at Fujitsu UK & Ireland, said: “This important investment announcement confirms Fujitsu’s commitment to the Northern Ireland economy and reinforces our position as a leading IT Services supplier to the public and private sectors throughout these islands. Already we estimate that 99% of the Northern Ireland population will come into contact with our work on behalf of our customers through a wide range of day to day transactions, whether that is through public service delivery, financial services, utilities, retailing, business transactions or travel. Fujitsu’s focus is on delivering a ‘Human Centric Intelligent Society’, and we offer a full range of innovative technology products, solutions and services to drive efficiencies, growth and responsible business practices, creating value for both customers and wider society.

“This Business Services Centre will now form an important part of our overall strategy to achieve business growth in this region and the choice of Timber Quay is a reflection on the highly skilled and motivated workforce as well as the excellent telecommunications infrastructure that we know exist here. These qualities, coupled with the support offered by Invest NI made this the obvious choice when we considered potential locations for this investment. I look forward to working with my colleagues to realise the potential of this investment in the months ahead and to delivering innovative technology solutions to more customers here in Northern Ireland and across the UK.”
