Leading UK online bookmaker, bet365 has expanded its operating capacity within Manchester after confirming it has taken a five-year lease on a city-centre building.
It comes after the online bookmaker launched its DevOPs department in November 2019, which significantly boosted bet365’s operational capacity.
“We are thrilled to welcome Bet365 to the final three floors at Core,” said James Whitcher, Asset Management Director, Boultbee Brooks Real Estate.
“Securing Bet365 against stiff competition is testament to the quality of the Core development and the whole project team who worked tirelessly to deliver an impressive transformation of a previously unloved building.”
“We’re delighted to secure such a high profile company for the remaining space at CORE. Following its comprehensive refurbishment, CORE has become one of Manchester’s most popular and sought after office buildings, appealing to tenants seeking a mix of modern office suites and collaborative workspaces,” added Jonathan Cook, Associate Director at CBRE Manchester.
In 2018, bet365 established a Manchester-based tech support office housed in the city’s Spring Gardens area, led by Warren Hughes the firm’s Head of Systems Development.
The bookmaker’s enlarged Manchester tech support unit is operated by subsidiary Hillside Technology, tasked with forming a bet365 ‘site reliability engineering‘ team.
