One of Northern Ireland’s most successful IT software and services companies, Equiniti ICS, has expanded its workforce with the support of Invest Northern Ireland’s Jobs Fund.
The Belfast-based company is creating 45 jobs as part of an overall expansion plan that will see it target the public sector, including health, and the financial services sector.
Equiniti ICS specialises in IT and payroll services and the new posts will be in its HR & Payroll Division. They will range from payroll administrators and controllers to account managers and senior managers.
The company currently employs 270 staff in Belfast and 100 in India. It has enjoyed steady growth for the last 10 years and is now aiming for a 30 per cent increase in revenues over the next two years.
David Mawhinney, Managing Director of Equiniti ICS, said: “Our strategy for growth includes targeting larger payroll outsourcing deals in the private sector, and becoming the largest private sector supplier of payroll services to the NHS. We are also developing software for case and document management based on Microsoft technologies for financial services organisations and the public sector.
“To support this we needed more staff in our payroll division and the support from Invest NI has allowed us to put those staff in place quickly and to carry out extensive marketing activity to help us break into new markets.”
Equiniti has a prestigious customer base with over 300 clients, including a significant number of blue chip companies in both the UK and Ireland.
In the last few years the company has received a range of support from Invest NI including grants to help it carry out research and development to integrate its payroll software and services using web services, and also to internationalise its Perito Case Management system.
Invest NI’s Jobs Fund was set up to help companies create jobs quickly. The target is to create 4,000 jobs through by 2014.
