Expleo is to double its Northern Irish workforce to 200, following a 125pc growth in revenues since 2017. 

Consultancy business Expleo is to create 100 new jobs by 2023 at its Belfast office.

The company will be recruiting for roles in AI, Robotics, Quality Engineering, Project Management and Business Agility.

“As the digital transformation agenda takes precedence at boardroom level, Expleo’s protracted phase of development in Northern Ireland looks set to accelerate”

This follows a 125pc increase in Expleo’s Northern Ireland revenue between year-end 2017 and year-end 2020. In this timeframe, the company’s NI staff base has increased from 70 to 100.

Leading role in fight against Covid-19

Last year, Expleo played a leading role in the rollout of the StopCOVID NI contact tracing app, designed for interoperability with the Covid Tracker app deployed in the Republic of Ireland.

Expleo carried out extensive quality testing on the app, the world’s first cross-border tracker device aimed at stopping the spread of Covid-19. Expleo’s expert quality assurance specialists dedicated more than 1,000 hours to testing the app in Northern Ireland.

“As the digital transformation agenda takes precedence at boardroom level, Expleo’s protracted phase of development in Northern Ireland looks set to accelerate,” said Rob McConnell, director of Expleo Group.

“This period of growth has been powered by an energised, motivated and dedicated workforce. Having earned our status as a Great Place to Work, Expleo takes a holistic approach to managing employee engagement and wellbeing, leaving no stone unturned to uphold a culture of creativity and care.

“With a rich pool of talent to draw from in Northern Ireland, we look forward to scaling our team and broadening our services portfolio to accommodate the evolving needs of local and international clients. As ever, the confluence of people and technological prowess will be the driving force behind our next chapter of success,” McConnell added.
