A company that uses a series of commercial property developments around Europe has revealed it is to welcome new staff to its premises when it makes 80 jobs available.

Kainos, a software company based in Northern Ireland, is to open up the positions at its Belfast office headquarters, reported the BBC.

The firm also has bases in London, Dublin and the Polish city of Gdansk, all of which house some of its 240 staff.

Northern Ireland enterprise minister Arlene Foster said: "Kainos considered placing these new jobs in other offices, however, today's announcement underlines the competitiveness of Northern Ireland as a location for investment."

Should more positions become available in the future, the company may wish to consider signing a lease for extra commercial property in one of its home cities.

Kelvin Davidson, property economist at Capital Economics, recently said users of the London commercial property market should be aware that its conditions are different to everywhere else in the UK.
