A technology firm has announced the creation of 123 new jobs in Belfast.

AquaQ Analytics is doubling its workforce as part of an £8.3m investment.

The company - which specialises in high speed, time sensitive database solutions - said 35 of the jobs are already in place.

Once all are in place, the jobs will contribute over £3.2m of annual salaries to the Northern Ireland economy.

Economy Minister Diane Dodds said: “This significant reinvestment by AquaQ Analytics is welcome news as we work to rebuild the economy post-pandemic.”
