All Graduate job news
Graduates hoping to find employment within the IT sector may be interested to hear that a computer firm in Londonderry, Northern Ireland is to create 85 new jobs as part of a £60 million investment.
Seagate Technologies is to create the jobs at the Springtown plant as part of its plan to boost technology and research in the city.
The announcement was made yesterday (January 28th) by the enterprise minister Arlene Foster at the Springtown site.
She said: "Seagate is once again demonstrating its confidence in our local workforce and suppliers and is helping send a very strong signal to other potential international investors that the north-west is a competitive and compelling location."
SDLP leader Mark Durkan told the Derry Journal that the 85 jobs are exactly the sort of high technology posts which the area needed.
Graduates who do take up a position at the plant will be joined by around 1,400 people existing employees at the Springtown site.
