Codec To Create 20 New Jobs in Belfast With £1.7m Investment

As part of plans to boost exports, IT solutions consultancy firm Codec is investing over £ 1.7 million to expand its Belfast center with 20 new jobs.

The IT company has created roles for project managers, IT services consultants, technical support, and more with recruitment already started. This initiative is supported by an investment of £125,000 from Invest NI, the new roles will more than double Codec’s current headcount in Belfast. 

Codec’s headquarters are in Dublin, and they specialize in end-to-end IT infrastructure and technology solutions. They provide businesses with a ‘full-stack’ integrated platform for hardware, software, and database solutions to ensure that business IT operations run efficiently.

“We have shown a real resilience throughout the pandemic and have readily adapted our technology and ways of working to ensure our continued growth,” said John Molloy, Codec’s Northern Ireland Commercial Lead

“Our Belfast office is crucial to our sustained growth and the new team members will be at the forefront of delivering our global business strategy. By growing our workforce, we will add to our expertise and knowledge of analytics, cloud, and mobile technology, so that we can expand our customer offering. This will enable us to increase our export success in Great Britain, Germany, and the Nordics.

“Invest NI has been a valuable source of advice and support during our time in Northern Ireland. The high level of skills and talent we have secured since we established here was key in our decision to expand our global business from Belfast.”

The company, which has been expanding in recent years, first set up its Belfast office in 2016. Codec also has offices in Galway, Cork, London, Germany, and Poland, with more than 200 employees worldwide. Its clients include Microsoft, Dell, Zurich, AIB, Bank of Ireland, Dublin Airport, and Tourism NI.

George McKinney, director of technology and services at Invest NI, added that Codec’s expansion is “great news” for the region’s economic recovery in the wake of Covid-19.

“The digital sector will be a major driver in the recovery of the economy and the additional annual salaries of £900,000 are a welcome contribution towards this,” he said.

Recruitment is already underway for the new jobs at Codec. To learn more, visit the company’s careers portal here.
