Independent online bookmaker bet365 has informed the market that it is seeking an additional 90 new recruits for its Manchester ‘Spring Gardens’ technology hub.
Opened last April 2016, the bet365 Manchester hub acts as a technology support and development arm for the firm’s HQ in Stoke (Staffordshire). The technology hub’s development has been led by Warren Hughes, bet365’s Head of Systems Development.
Hughes detailed to Local news sources that following a successful set-up, bet365 has significantly expanded its Manchester divisions operations. The next round of recruitment will see bet365 take its Manchester headcount to approximately 150 staff members.
Seeking to bring in local tech talent, Hughes details that bet365 is seeking ‘all-levels’ of experience for its Manchester expansion, including web and software developers, project managers and tech leads.
Hughes details candidates the core challenge of working at bet365: “An average Saturday for us is busier than most e-commerce sites are on Black Friday. There are few places where you’ll be as challenged and stretched.”
