SDLP Leader Colum Eastwood has welcomed the fantastic news that FinTru Ltd have announced 600 new jobs in both Derry and Belfast. The financial services company, after much successful growth, have made the decision to expand in Northern Ireland, creating new jobs, lowering unemployment and growing the economy in the North West.
The MLA for Foyle commented: “Derry City and Strabane have historically had the highest unemployment rates in the North, due to lack of investment and slow economic growth.
“The importance of FinTru’s decision to invest in Derry cannot be understated, the financial benefits of this investment will do much to pour resources back into the local economy here in the North West.
“I am encouraged that FinTru Ltd will be partnering with the North West Regional College to ensure our talented young people leaving education can stay put in Northern Ireland, and not be forced to seek employment elsewhere on these islands.”
