Nick Turberville, Business Development Director, GB Construction gave an introduction to Invest Northern Ireland at their London office, which opened in November 2019. Nick said that acumen7 was in fact the first external group to use their space. Invest Northern Ireland is a localised version of the DIT. They look for predominantly technical, legal and financial services firms, and endeavour to convince them to set up in Northern Ireland. They also look at the long-term unemployed and giving them skills to get them back into the workplace. Nick specifically works with construction companies in Northern Ireland to help them work in other parts of the UK. Nick also speaks to his counterparts around the world to introduce companies. Invest NI has 20 offices globally and employs 600 people.
