Local MLA Sinead Ennis has welcomed news from BT that they will be creating a total of 130 new jobs across Northern Ireland.

These new jobs will be located in areas such as Newry and Belfast, Coleraine, Dungannon, Enniskillen, and Derry.



The new positions will be both apprenticeship and graduate level jobs.

This will also include BT’s engineering division, NI Network, which will be creating 30 new apprentice level jobs over a 12-month period.

Speaking to Newry Times, the Sinn Féin representative said, “This is very welcome news by BT, a company which already employs 2,743 staff in the North of Ireland.

“It will bring a welcome boost to the economy. Since Brexit, we have not had many of these good news stories about job creation.



She continued, “These apprentice and graduate jobs will be massively beneficial to many young people who are now entering the work environment for the first time.

“Positions such as these are part of a shift towards a modernising economy, we need to recognise the growing importance that these highly valued jobs will have in the future. This is being seen even in schools with more focus being placed on the STEM subjects of Science, Technology, Engineering, and Maths.”

Ennis added, “The location of these jobs will also bring a boost locally and I hope to see more good news like this in the future.”
