SOCIAL Development Minister Nelson McCausland has revealed plans to create up to 150 new jobs in the NI Child Maintenance Service.
The jobs will be within the eastern division of Belfast’s Child Maintenance Service.
It provides services for the eastern area of Great Britain.
Mr McCausland said the £3m investment is “fantastic news” for the city.
“Securing new jobs in the current climate is a challenge and it is testament to the hard work and dedication of staff in the NI Child Maintenance Service,” said the DUP minister.
“These are jobs which could have gone to one of the other service providers in Great Britain, but Belfast has come out on top by offering a quality service and value for money.
“I am delighted that my department is playing its part in boosting the local economy and securing much needed local jobs.”
The service helps separated and separating parents to make informed choices about child maintenance and help set up, arrange or collect child maintenance.
