Professional services firm Grant Thornton has created 71 new jobs by opening a second office in Belfast. The positions are expected to generate an additional £1.2 million a year for the local economy and will provide specialist tax, audit and advisory services to local businesses.
Richard Gillan, partner in charge in Belfast, said: “These new positions represent the first step of a growth programme for Grant Thornton in Northern Ireland over the coming years. “Grant Thornton (NI) LLP has witnessed significant growth over the last 12 months and we expect this trend to continue as we build the team and the firm’s offering of services to an expanding client base.”
Invest NI provided the company with just over £200,000 in grant aid.
