Derry Jobs announcement welcome - McCartney
Sinn Fein MLA Raymond McCartney has welcomed the announcement that Texas-based OneSource Virtual (OneSource) is to set up an HR Outsourcing Centre in Derry, creating 289 new jobs by 2017.
Raymond McCartney said:
"Today's major investment by One Source, creating 289 high end jobs in Derry by the end of 2017 is welcome news.
“It is particular good news for Derry and the North West, which has the highest level of unemployment rates across the North.
“While I have, in the past been critical of InvestNI record in this constituency I acknowledge the assistance provided by them in securing this major job creation project for Derry.
“When fully operational this job announcement with potential earnings of £36,000 a year will contribute upwards of £12million to the local economy giving a major boost to the local economy.”
