Applications are flooding in for hundreds of new jobs with a US internet firm setting up in Derry.

OneSource Virtual, which specialises in human resources, and has its headquarters in Dallas, Texas, is to create 289 jobs in the city.

Its Derry operation is to open in September and all 289 jobs are to be in place by the end of December 2017.

The roles include payroll administration, benefits administration and application management services.

Most employees will have the potential to earn about £36,000 a year.

Grafton Recruitment has already launched a campaign to fill the new jobs.
