Named as the UK’s fastest growing economy and ranked in the top 10 of the best UK cities to live and work by The Good Growth for Cities index, Belfast is where it’s all happening.

The Belfast4life campaign launched by Abacus Recruitment comes at a time of great opportunity. The rapid rise of hi-tech and Digital companies in Belfast has increased employment in the Digital field by 73% and shed new light on career prospects as a result.

The city itself has seen huge international investment over the last ten years and is now a sophisticated and cosmopolitan place to live. With easy commutes and affordable living, Belfast has become a very attractive location to kick start your career or settle down with a family.

However, this surge in Digital business has also created a demand for highly skilled teams and individuals who love and are passionate about Digital and are capable of working with leading edge technology to create successful campaigns for clients.

The concept of inviting the talent that once called Northern Ireland home back to their roots and indeed back to Belfast is an exciting one and one that we were delighted to get involved with.

As a marketing and technology focussed company, creating and executing successful online campaigns for our clients is key to our success. Building on our success in 2015, as a growing business we know our team needs to grow with us.

With re-locaters already part of our team in the fields of UX, Digital Marketing and Technology, we are very aware that their experience may not have been acquired here, at a very different time for our industry. Therefore reaching out to Digital lovers overseas today, national or international, could prove extremely valuable in developing Engage and our client portfolio.

Faced with the challenge of finding the right people to join our team with both client and Digital Agency experience, we have opportunities within UXProject Management and Business Analysis. Digital Marketing is also a major growth area within Engage and in 2015 we saw increasing numbers of clients keen to benefit from the customer success element which it provides. 

So if you love Digital and think you could be part of the team, check our our current opportunties on the website or send us a cv to and we will look forward to hearing from you!
