Multinational professional services giant EY has ‘carried out extensive due diligence on potential locations’ for a proposed new hub in the North West, the Department of the Economy has confirmed.

Ernst & Young Global Limited – one of the ‘Big 4’ global accounting firms – last September announced it was creating 1,000 new jobs across the North over the next five years and that it would be setting up a base in the North West.

SDLP MLA Sinéad McLaughlin asked the Department for the Economy for a progress update on the jobs and the hub which are being supported by Invest NI.
