Codec-dss, a leading ICT provider in the Republic of Ireland, is setting up a new office in Northern Ireland to grow its business in the UK market.
Codec-dss provides IT solutions including IT Consulting, Managed Services, Hardware and IT Application Development and Deployment.
Announcing the new project, which will create 10 new jobs, Bill Scott, Invest Northern Ireland’s Director of International Business said: “Codec-dss Ltd has offices in the Republic of Ireland, Poland and Germany and now sees the UK market as being the next step to help grow its existing core areas of business. The company has chosen Northern Ireland for this new office due to the availability of a talented workforce and proximity to Great Britain.
“The new office is already up and running with four of the 10 new roles in place. The company is now looking to recruit consultant roles which will attract salaries of approximately £35,000. Once the project is fully operational it will generate £440,000 in annual salaries into the Northern Ireland economy.”
Codec-dss currently employs over 120 people across its offices, providing IT services and solutions to the private and public sectors. It has recently signed the Department for Communities as a new client.
Invest NI has offered £45,000 towards the creation of the 10 new jobs.
John Roddy from Codec-dss said: “We have identified an opportunity to broaden our geographical markets as well as continuing to cross sell our products and services. We will be specifically targeting the GB market from the Northern Ireland office.
“We offer a great opportunity for newly graduated IT professionals and technical experts, providing training to help them become specialists and further enhance their career development, we are also looking to hire experienced candidates. We are impressed by the availability of skilled workers in Northern Ireland.
“Invest NI has been very supportive of our plans and we are confident we will develop a team here that can really help our business to grow.”
