Hermes seeks 50 tech recruits to fill new office
Written by Peter Walker
Retail delivery company Hermes is set to open a new office in the centre of Leeds and is looking to recruit 50 new permanent technology specialists, including senior developers and user experience experts.
The new 6,500 square foot Tech Hub is located at No.1 Whitehall Riverside, in the heart of Leeds’ growing technology district.
The office space will be home to the company’s Innovation Lab, which has been creating services and solutions designed to change the delivery landscape since its creation in 2016.
The 50 new recruits - who will include developers, testers and product owners - will be joined by a further 20 colleagues who will relocate from the company’s headquarters in Morley, plus those from the Innovation Lab, who previously worked from a separate office space in Leeds.
Chris Ashworth, chief investment officer at Hermes, commented: “At a time of economic uncertainty, we are committed to further investing in our future, and this vibrant office will play a key role in that.
“It provides us with the perfect opportunity to attract the very best talent from across the north of England, who will each be given the freedom to make a real impact on our evolving business.”
