Virgin job creation 'will boost the local economy'

I am delighted that Virgin Media will be creating 400 jobs across the UK, with 230 being based in South Wales.

As an employer known for its solid performance, Virgin Media is proving that, although these are tough times for businesses, they are still able to grow and build. The state-of-the-art centre, newly refurbished in Swansea in July, along with the additional 230 jobs, will further cement their base in Wales.

The news today will further boost the local economy with the creation of jobs in Swansea.

– David Jones MP, Welsh Secretary

This is really excellent news.

It is so refreshing to see a company making a local investment instead of moving jobs overseas.

– Sian James, MP for Swansea East
