Datactics officially opens their second Belfast based office, celebrating local partnerships. 

 

Following from a major £1.2m investment, we are pleased to unveil the opening of our second office in Belfast City Centre as part of recent growth and expansion for the company.

 

Mick Foster (COO – Datactics), Suzanne Wylie (CEO – Belfast City Council), Stuart Harvey (CEO – Datactics) and two pupils from Rosetta Primary School in Belfast.

Joined by Thelma Crawford, Rosetta Primary School Principal, we celebrate our partnership with the local primary school to motivate and guide young people; in which we have become a finalist of the Responsible Business Awards.

This partnership continues into its second year, with our employees volunteering within Rosetta to empower parents through knowledge transfers and encourage the aspirations and development of local children in English, maths and coding skills.

With more than double the number of employees from the year prior, the premises have been officially opened to facilitate the company’s rapid expansion and to fulfill the growing client demand.
