150 NEW jobs will be created across Newport and Monmouthshire as telecommunications company MJ Quinn has expanded into south Wales.

Around 15 of these will be office-based, with the rest based in field.

The expansion of the Merseyside-based company is creating a total of 400 new jobs across north west England and south Wales following a contract award by Openreach.


As part of the expansion, MJ Quinn has opened a logistics centre on Curlew Close in Newport, which will house both office and logistics functions.
