125 jobs announced for Donegal

One hundred and twenty-five jobs have been announced for Donegal.

Manchester-based digital marketing company SLM Connect is set to establish an office in the Gaeltacht Gaoth Dobhair.

Supported by Údarás na Gaeltachta, the positions are in the costumer service area.

Twenty-five people will be taken on in the initial stages. The company has 130 employees in England.

SLM Connect founder and CEO, Abdul Salam, said: "SLM Connect has grown its business substantially in recent times. The increase in the level of new business contracts presented us with a challenge as the business outgrew its current contact centre facility in Manchester.

"The company requires extra capacity in order to grow and expand. We looked at a number of possible options and after careful consideration we felt that Gaoth Dobhair would be a great location for the next stage of our development.

"SLM Éire will help us to expand our operations further afield, grow our business and provide us with new opportunities."
