The high-quality posts will be based at Novosco's offices at the Science Park on Queen's Island.

It comes as part of a £4.1m investment at the company, which provides IT infrastructure and cloud based services to clients across the UK and Ireland.

Enterprise Minister Arlene Foster welcomed the news and said the jobs will contribute almost £20m per year into the Northern Ireland economy.

The DUP minister added: "The new high level jobs are exactly what Northern Ireland needs to help rebalance the economy towards higher added value private sector activity."

Novosco, which has been in business 20 years this year, currently employs 70 people at its Science Park office and an additional 20 employees at offices in Dublin and Birmingham.

Invest NI has contributed towards funding the creation of the new jobs.

Patrick McAliskey, Managing Director of Novosco, said the company is looking to hire service desk engineers, implementation engineers, software consultants and network engineers as part of plans to grow its business with large organisations in Britain, the Republic of Ireland and NI.

He went on: "We've benefitted from Invest NI support over a number of years to help us build our product portfolio and target export markets.

"As a result we have been able to accelerate our growth and expand our sales outside NI."
