To ask the Minister of Enterprise, Trade and Investment how many of the jobs created by InvestNI in each constituency during the 2012/13 financial year offer a salary which is (i) less than 25 percent above; and (ii) 25 percent or more than the average private sector wage, expressed as a number and a percentage of all the new jobs created by inward investment projects during this period.
The table below provides the number and percentage of jobs promoted by inward-investment projects which offer a salary of (i) above, but less than 25 percent above; and (ii) 25 percent or more above the average private sector wage. The baseline is the Northern Ireland Private Sector Median (NI PSM).
These do not include those jobs promoted by the Jobs Fund, since this programme does not have job quality targets. It should also be noted that Invest NI does not have a Programme for Government target to promote jobs with average salaries 25% above the NI PSM. The target only relates to the number above the NI PSM.
