Seagate is to create 35 new jobs in Derry, it has been announced.

The city’s MP Mark Durkan said this morning’s announcement was “a huge vote of confidence in the Springtown plant and in the existing workforce there.”

“These additional posts are exactly the sort of high-end technology jobs which we need to secure to develop and boost not only Seagate’s presence but the wider Derry economy,” he said.

Sinn Fein’s Gerry Ó hEára said the jobs “are what Derry needs to help boost our economy.”

“Seagate is one of the largest employers in the city and the fact that they have chosen to make this significant investment of almost £35million in their future in Derry is a hugely positive development which recognises the high quality of employee available in the North West.”
