Foster announces over 50 new jobs for Mango Direct Marketing Limited


Enterprise Minister Arlene Foster has announced that Mango Direct Marketing Limited is creating 55 new jobs with the support of Invest Northern Ireland’s Jobs Fund.

The Bangor based company provides direct telemarketing and customer services to a range of clients based locally, nationally and internationally. It currently works with many high profile companies in the UK, US, Australia, Ireland and Israel.

Announcing the new jobs during a visit to the company, Arlene Foster said: “Mango is a successful business that has achieved a steady increase in sales over the past five years. This expansion is an important progression in the next stage of Mango’s development and signals the company’s ongoing commitment to the local area.

“The jobs are being supported by Invest NI Jobs Fund and will enable Mango to take on major new contracts in its key target markets. The business services sector is an important driver for the economy and it is encouraging to see companies investing in growth even in these difficult times.”

Mango has achieved year on year growth since its establishment in 2008 and the continued customer demand for its services, among several large home shopping and charity organisations, has prompted the company to expand its workforce.

Invest NI has offered Mango Direct Marketing £165,000 of support through the Jobs Fund to assist with its expansion. By 2014 Invest NI aims to have supported the creation of 4,000 jobs through this measure, which is part of its Boosting Business initiative.

Stuart Lally, Managing Director of Mango Direct Marketing, said: “Our strategy for growth includes investing in our current staff training programs and company structures whilst also increasing our share of the niche markets in which we currently work. Support from Invest NI through the Jobs Fund will also enable us to put in place the staff we need to take advantage of new business opportunities in the corporate sector and cement our competitive position in key markets.”
