A cloud computing provider is creating 21 new jobs in Belfast.

Novosco is doubling its office space to meet significant growth in its business.

The company has acquired 11,000 sq ft of accommodation as it is set for at least 18% expansion in turnover this year alone. It currently employs around 140 people.

It has won major contracts with organisations across the UK and Ireland, from top universities to global financial organisations and some of the largest NHS trusts.

Based in the new Concourse 3 building at Catalyst, the facility includes a customised staff gym, a library, a specially designed staff coffee dock, and a virtual reality room for staff entertainment.

Novosco employed world-renowned architects, office designers and fit-out specialists for the project. It even employed the services of a graffiti artist to create bespoke artwork on the interior walls of the building.

The firm was recently ranked by the Sunday Times as one of the Top 100 Companies to work for in the UK for the fourth year in a row.

Managing director Patrick McAliskey said: "What sets us apart without any doubt is that we have some of the most talented people, including IT engineers, sales professionals, and project managers, in the business.

"We wanted to create a unique office environment to support our efforts to recruit and retain the very best.

"We've taken inspiration from what the absolute leading companies in the world in places like the US are doing.

"We don't think there are any other offices in Northern Ireland quite like what we have created and we feel that they will play a crucial role in the continuing growth of our business."

Founded in Belfast over 20 years ago, Novosco now has offices in Dublin, Cork, Manchester, and Cheshire.
