150 IT jobs set for Caerphilly

AROUND 150 jobs are set to come to Caerphilly with the opening of a new office for an English firm.

Attenda Ltd, based in Staines in Middlesex say they have £1.98m in Welsh government support to bring the posts to South Wales.

The firm provides IT support and infrastructure to UK and international business.

Business Minister Edwina Hart welcomed the news saying: "This is a good example of a company that had a number of alternative locations to consider for their expansion but chose Wales because of the availability of a workforce with the relevant skills and a business environment where they can flourish.

"Attenda operates in one of our key priority sectors, which have been identified as having high growth potential, so this investment is a very welcome addition to the ICT sector in Wales."
