Belfast financial services firm FinTrU is creating more than 600 jobs and opening a new hub in Londonderry, it can be revealed.
In one of the largest single jobs announcements in the last few years, the firm, founded by Cork man Darragh McCarthy, is adding 300 new jobs to its Belfast workforce and a further 305 by opening a new office in Derry.
It currently employs around 250 staff, and has two offices in Belfast.
FinTrU was formed in 2014, and works with some of the world’s largest tier one investment banks in areas such as regulation and legal services.
“Based on FinTrU’s growth to date, and having successfully partnered with Invest NI on job creation, along with the Department for the Economy, FinTrU has realised it is time to make a further investment in Northern Ireland,” he told Ulster Business.
“And more significantly, not just in Belfast, but outside of Belfast, and we have identified the north west region of Northern Ireland.”
“There is surplus available talent, at a great cost point.”
“We look forward to partnering with the North West Regional College with the academy model, similar to what we have done with Belfast Met.
“FinTrU’s plans for the next five years is we will run six academies a year.”
