A health diagnostics company based in Antrim in Northern Ireland has announced a business expansion that will see 100 new jobs created. The 100 new jobs will be filled in the next few months (summer 2014) after having one of their most successful years of trading in 2013, where pre-tax profits increased from £2.5 million to £12.9 million.

Sixty of the 100 new recruits have already started work with a further 50 due to start by September 2014. The new jobs will include roles in positions such as engineers, biomedical students, business and marketing specialists, physicist, mathematicians, IT specialists and logisticians. This latest expansion in the workforce at Randox follows recruitment of more than 200 new staff since the beginning of 2014.
