Some 180 jobs are set to be created at the Stormont Assembly as devolution in Northern Ireland is restored.
The jobs are for staff to support assembly committees and will be followed by around 380 posts to be filled over the next two to three years, according to the BBC.
Clerks and parliamentary reporters are among the roles being advertised on the assembly's website.
New ministers have been fulfilling engagements this week, including agriculture minister Michelle Gildernew who toured a cattle farm, stating that farmers in particular "needed to see the end of direct rule".
Meanwhile, enterprise minister Nigel Dodds opened a new robotics research centre at Londonderry's Magee College.
Earlier this week, UTV reported that both the Irish Business and Employers Confederation and the Confederation of British Industry's Joint Business Council regarded the move as a significant development for their cause - promoting business co-operation.
