NORTHERN Ireland’s jobs market is expected to get a major shot in the arm later today.
It is understood the global IT company Fujitsu is expected to make a major jobs announcement for Londonderry on Tuesday to its existing workforce at Timber Quay.
The company, which also employs people in Belfast and Antrim, is a major provider of IT services to the public sector in Northern Ireland.
The jobs announcement comes less than a few days after First Minister Peter Robinson and deputy first minister Martin McGuinness returned from Japan.
They met with senior political and business figures, including leading executives of Fujitsu.
It is believed their trip helped seal the deal on bringing the jobs to Northern Ireland and not another party of the UK.
