Call centre giant Convergys is celebrating 10 years working in Northern Ireland.

The US-owned firm now employs 2,100 people here.

The anniversary was marked by Employment Minister Stephen Farry and Enterprise Minister Jonathan Bell, who attended an event to mark the opening of Convergys' first Belfast centre in 2005.

Convergys is now based across three sites, providing sales and customer services for telecoms, financial services and media.

Speaking to staff at Convergys' offices in Airport Road in Belfast, Dr Farry said: "I am pleased to join in with Convergys' 10-year celebrations and to see their continued success."

And Mr Bell said the Belfast office had just 35 staff when it first opened back in 2005.

He said Convergys contributed around £30m to the economy each year. The ministers were joined buy Invest NI chief executive Alastair Hamilton.
