Financial services company Deloitte is to create 125 jobs in Belfast over the next two years.

The firm provides a range of audit, tax, consulting and corporate finance services to clients across the public and private sectors from offices in Britain and Ireland.

The North's Enterprise Minister Arlene Foster said the investment was 'a clear endorsement of the skills and infrastructure which Northern Ireland has to offer investors'.

100 of the new jobs will come from the establishment of a National Solution Centre, which will focus on software development, testing, analytics and application support. A further 25 jobs will come from the establishment of a complementary unit to research and develop best market practices in relation to tax processes and administration.

The move means Deloitte will have 275 workers in Belfast by 2013.
