The city of Belfast, and indeed Northern Ireland is now home to a record number of major investment announcements.  Local companies are rapidly expanding, global companies are arriving on a weekly basis.  With thousands of new job opportunities now available, offering high quality of work, a healthy quality of life and stronger work/life balance, Abacus Professional Recruitment wanted to share the prosperity of the city and attract home grown skills and talent back to Belfast, Northern Ireland.

Abacus held video interviews of executives from many leading companies within Accountancy, Financial Services, Legal and IT/Technology to name a few industry sectors.  We shared their growth plans for 2015, the type of people and skills they look for when recruiting and the success they have had in appointing returners and re locators to their teams.  With great support and overall success we are overwhelmed with the positive feedback for our award winning campaign and we are dedicated to continue promoting how Belfast is moving forward.  #BelfastforLife ‘Bring Your Talent Home’.
