New bank opening creates seven jobs
Seven new jobs have been created in south Belfast with the opening of a new bank.
The state-of-the-art Bank of Ireland branch on the Ormeau Road aims to cater for both personal and business customers in the area.
Covering 4,145 square feet, the new premises boasts an open, spacious layout and modern facilities, including a private area for 365 telephone banking.
It employs six full-time and one part-time member of staff.
The new premises, one of 44 Bank of Ireland branches in Northern Ireland, was opened by Belfast Lord Mayor, Councillor Naomi Long.
She said she was in no doubt it would quickly become integral to south Belfast’s thriving business community.
“The current economic climate means this investment is not only welcome, but absolutely vital for supporting local business and encouraging growth of the small business sector,” she added.
