15 January 2007
ICS Computing is one of a number of companies who has been chosen to develop the high flying graduate pool in Northern Ireland.
This exciting new graduate export development initiative created by Investni provides marketing and exporting training for graduates from all degree backgrounds. Training is accredited by the Marketing Institute of Ireland and is designed to develop the personal and professional skills necessary for a graduate's first step on the export marketing career ladder.
Christopher McEntee who recently graduated in International Business studies is one of the first graduates to be chosen to participate in the new Invest Northern Ireland E2 'Exporting Excellence' Programme.
The E2 Programme delivered by Parity in partnership with Envision involves a 'matching process' to ensure graduates and companies complement each other perfectly and that each company and graduate gets what they need from the programme.
Christopher is delighted to have been matched already and is looking forward to the challenge of his new career.
He said: "The matching of graduates with companies was a rigorous exercise but is essential to ensure the creation of a relationship that will prove to be successful and help the Northern Ireland economy grow in the global marketplace."
"I have been matched with ICS based in Belfast." One of the leading providers in the UK and Ireland of HR and Payroll solutions, Accounting and Distribution software and Public Sector Software, ICS helps its customers manage some of the most complex business processes in a way that is innovative, flexible and future-proof.

By providing support, advice and a talented graduates to help firms explore export potential, E2 ensures that companies and graduates develop new skills which will deliver maximum benefits to all involved and add value to the Northern Ireland economy."
