US firm Bazaarvoice provides much needed new jobs

The creation of new jobs, whether or not a devolved administration is in place at Stormont, is always a key priority, so there will be a warm welcome for yesterday's announcement that a US software firm is to recruit 170 employees in Belfast.

Bazaarvoice, which is based in Texas, works with major online shopping outlets including Debenhams, Matalan and Argos, and is providing posts with an average salary of £32,000, with support from both Invest NI and the Department of the Economy.

There is an urgent need to attract fresh investment from similarly expanding companies not just in Belfast but also in all our other main centres of population.
