Gildernew welcomes Enniskillen jobs boost

Published: 22 October, 2014

Sinn Féin MP Michelle Gildernew has welcomed the announcement by Lakeland Trading Standards of 49 new jobs based in Enniskillen.

Ms Gildernew said,

"The announcement today of 49 new jobs in Enniskillen is good news for the area and I hope that more jobs can be created in the future.

'The injection of money by Invest NI has also to be welcomed as there has been a lack of investment in the past by Invest NI in the Fermanagh area. So it is good to see a change on emphasis from Invest NI to include smaller towns.

"We need to continue to work together with businesses and Invest NI and other politicians to attract more employment into the region.

"Fermanagh and the surrounding area has proven that it has a highly qualified skilled conscientious workforce. So there is no reason why we cannot continue to bring new jobs into the area."
