    George McKinney, Director of Technology & Services at Invest NI said: “This significant reinvestment by Codec is great news as we rebuild the local economy post-Covid. Invest NI has worked with the company since 2016, when we supported its first investment in Northern Ireland and this new investment will see Codec more than double its workforce in Belfast. 

    “Over 70% of new investors reinvest in Northern Ireland, which is testament to the excellence and resilience of our local talent."

    John Molloy, Codec’s Northern Ireland Commercial Lead added: “Our Belfast office is crucial to our sustained growth and the new team members will be at the forefront of delivering our global business strategy.

    "By growing our workforce, we will add to our expertise and knowledge of analytics, cloud and mobile technology, so that we can expand our customer offering. This will enable us to increase our export success in Great Britain, Germany and the Nordics."

    Codec also has offices in Galway, Cork, London, Germany and Poland, with over 200 staff globally. Its clients include Microsoft, Dell, Zurich, AIB, Bank of Ireland, Dublin Airport Authority and Tourism NI.
