PwC has revealed that it will create up to 1,000 jobs over the next three years at its newly launched technology hub in Manchester.
At least 100 of the new jobs are being recruited immediately for the tech hub, which will be located at the firm’s Manchester office at 1 Spinningfields, where 1,400 people are currently based.
The hub will focus on developing technology products and assets for use across the firm’s business and to support client work.
Kevin Ellis, chairman and senior partner, PwC, said: “The opening of our technology hub reflects the critical and growing role of new technologies to our business and our clients. It also underscores our commitment to regional growth and supporting regional rebalancing. More than half of our staff are now based outside London and that proportion will continue to grow.
“Alongside our offices in Bradford and Leeds, our expansion in the North West reflects our confidence in regional growth and the important role of offices in attracting people and nurturing talent. Skills in technology and strengthening regional prosperity are vital to the UK economy and closing the productivity gap.”
