“These new jobs are a boost to the region offering flexible employment to a wide range of people, from those with experience in customer service to others looking to develop new work skills. It is anticipated that the majority of the jobs will be filled by local unemployed people giving them training, experience and valuable transferable skills.

“The support we have received has been important to us getting the operation up and running and we look forward to working with them as we grow the operation over the next couple of years.
 
“As an Enniskillen man myself, it is great to be able to give something back to the area by setting up the business here.”
