MetaCompliance to Create 70 New Jobs in Latest Derry Expansion

September 30, 2019

Leading Cyber Security firm, MetaCompliance, is creating over 70 new jobs as part of a £4.5 million global expansion plan.

The company has been developing software and training for the Cyber Security and Compliance market since 2005 and is growing rapidly as worldwide demand for its products increases.

To support its continued growth into new markets, the company is recruiting across all disciplines including software development, software testing, sales, marketing, HR, support, design and motion graphics. The 70 new jobs will help develop the Cyber Security learning market via cloud-based solutions. 

Robert O’Brien, Chief Executive, MetaCompliance, said: “Our ambition is to be internationally recognised in our field of expertise. We have seen a rapid global increase in the demand for Cyber Security products and services, particularly since GDPR has been implemented.

“Invest NI’s support has been fundamental to our continued growth to match this demand. Along with help to grow our team, it has supported the development of our specialist cloud-based software solutions, and our team’s talent and skills. This ensures that we are in the best position to advance in European and U.S. markets.”

Invest Northern Ireland has offered £695,000 of support towards creating the new jobs and market development activity.

John Hood, Multi Sector Director, Invest NI, said: “MetaCompliance is already a strongly established business within the Cyber Security sector. The creation of these jobs will build upon its previous success and help the company to expand its presence in the North West, the Cyber Security market, and in new markets.

“We have worked with MetaCompliance for many years, helping it to reach its full business potential, and I am delighted to see the business continuing to expand and succeed. The creation of 70 new jobs will generate £1.9 million annually in additional salaries into the local economy. I wish the company well in its new export development activity.”

Invest NI has previously supported MetaCompliance with job creation investment in 2017; management and digital training for employee development; and R&D support for its innovative Voyager and MyCompliance Clouduser awareness cloud solutions. The company is also currently receiving support through Invest NI’s Skills Growth Programme.
