Economy Minister disappointed at today’s BT announcement to withdraw 300 jobs from its Enniskillen site by October 2024.

Ms Hargey said:

“It is extremely disappointing that BT has decided to close its Enniskillen contact centre with a loss of 300 jobs.  As a major employer in the region for over three decades, this decision is devastating for the workers and their families, and also for the wider community.”

Deirdre added:

“In line with his commitment to regional balance Conor Murphy met with both CWU representatives and BT to retain these skilled jobs. He also supported Invest NI’s concerted efforts to work with BT to find an alternative site within Enniskillen so these jobs could be retained. I have asked Invest NI to ensure every step possible is taken to support the staff impacted.”
