A Dublin-based fintech company is creating jobs to expand its presence in Gateshead.

Now, the firm has revealed plans to take on six new staff in the town over the next six months.

“That’s why we chose Gateshead for our technical hub.”
He added: “The North East of England is best placed to deliver the skills required to grow and service this fast paced and technically challenging sector.”
Discussing Phonovation’s recruitment plans, Paddy said the business is currently looking to hire three .Net developers to immediately strengthen it technical team.
