EY to create 136 new jobs at its offices in Belfast
Professional services firm EY is set to create 136 new jobs in its Belfast office, adding to its current headcount of over 520 people.
Michael Hall, managing partner, EY Northern Ireland, said the new roles "reflect our continuing strong growth and ongoing commitment to Northern Ireland".
"Our clients are very resilient and managing a number of short-term challenges and opportunities as best they can, but uncertainty is making many hesitant to commit to longer-term plans," he added.
"The key for our clients is to remain flexible and agile through the coming months, and we're here to support all of them every step of the way.
"Today's business environment requires a new diversity of skills and thought.
"These new roles will also help us to continue offering our clients exceptional service into the future."
In total, EY will create over 600 jobs, including 363 graduate roles, across its 10 offices on the island of Ireland, which will bring the headcount in EY to just under 3,700.
