AXA Insurance announce new jobs for Derry

5 March, 2007

Sinn Féin Foyle Assembly election candidate Raymond McCartney has welcomed the news that AXA Insurance is to set up an office in Derry.

Mr McCartney said,

"The announcement today by AXA Insurance that they are to invest £15 million over the 5 years in a new contact centres in the Northland Road in welcome news for Derry. The 150 new jobs over the next year and a half will help reverse the recent job losses that the North West has suffered.

"I have no doubt that AXA Insurance has made the right decision in choosing Derry as its base. With a highly educated and motivated work force and new state of the art office facilities becoming available Derry makes an attractive option for companies.

"I also welcome the news that the Invest NI helped secure this contract for the North West region and hope that they will continue to push the region to off set the imbalance of job creation West of the Bann." ENDS
