Invest Northern Ireland has offered £1.7m ($2.6m) of support to secure the project.
“The new jobs being created by PwC all offer salaries significantly higher than average and will boost the local economy by generating more than £8m a year in additional salaries by 2014,” Northern Ireland’s enterprise minister Arlene Foster said.
