FINANCIAL technology consultancy Vox Financial Partners in Belfast has committed to investing £1 million in its Service Delivery Centres (SDC) in a move which will lead to the creation of 30 jobs.
Vox, established in 2015 and whose chief executive is Omagh-born but New York-domiciled Terry Robinson, launched its SDC offering last year and quickly developed an industry reputation as a centre of excellence for data-intensive project work.
The latest investment will be primarily in additional staff to service new and existing clients' nearshoring and business process outsourcing requirements.
“We're looking for ambitious, data-literate people to join our rapidly growing team,” said Neil McComiskey, head of the SDC.
“The roles our clients require are technical in nature and typically carried out in their London or New York offices. But Belfast has the talent pool and track record of delivering high-quality work as a nearshore alternative.”
Following Vox's acquisition of Delv Global in January, it added a cutting-edge data practice capability to its industry-leading risk and regulatory change management consulting services.
Delv's Poland-based project teams in Ludz complement the Belfast-based service delivery centre to create a deeper pool of highly skilled specialists to support a broader range of projects and business processes for financial institutions.
Vox says it is also researching North American locations for a third SDC to provide time zone-aligned capabilities for clients in the US and Canada.
Last year Vox unveiled plans to double its Belfast workforce to 50 as part of a £1.5 million investment backed to the tune of £175,000 by Invest NI.
