BREAKING: 250 new jobs announced for Derry by US based technology firm, salaries will range from £25,000 to £45,000 per year
10 Sept 2018
250 new jobs will be created in Derry through the setting up of a 'centre of excellence' in the city by a US based IT firm. Alchemy Technology, which is based in Houston, Texas has announced the 250 new high level jobs for Derry at a event held at the North West Regional College (NWRC) this morning. The jobs have been created through a partnership involving the company, Derry City and Strabane District Council, North West Institute and the local branch of InvestNI. Welcoming the announcement, Sinn Féin MP Elisha McCallion said it was a 'major boost' for the local economy. “Today's announcement that tech consultancy firm Alchemy Technology will be setting up a new centre of excellence in Derry is a great boost to the city and the wider north west region," she said. “The company is making a significant investment in the city through the creation of 250 high level posts with salaries ranging from £25,000 to £45,000 per year. “This is a major boost for the local economy and demonstrates what this region can offer when people work in partnership to make the vision of a new Derry and north west a reality. “At a time when the uncertainties of a Tory Brexit looms over business and threatens the economy here job creation of this level is welcome news. She added: “These jobs will provide much-needed employment for the local area and particularly for our young people and I look forward to seeing them come to fruition." Alchemy Technology Group is an industry-leading IT advisory, consulting, and reseller firm headquartered in Houston, Texas.
