100 new jobs created at Halifax tech hub


Tech company AND Digital has chosen Halifax as the next location for a new office which will employ over 100 people.

The company, which is one of the fastest growing in Europe is currently ranked third in The Sunday Times 75 Best Companies to Work For in the North West and has locations in London, Manchester, and Leeds already.

The new base will be in Halifax’s Cultural Quarter, in the Leeds Beckett University Business Centre.

The company said it is looking to recruit staff to its new location, or ‘club’ as it is referred to within the business which will include roles for designers, developers, engineers and analysts.

AND Digital’s existing ‘clubs’ are named after famous pioneers, including Laura Dekker and Alan Turing. The latest club, Club Spärck, is named after the British computer scientist Karen Spärck Jones.

“We’re looking forward to playing our part in helping grow the digital economy across the North, and West Yorkshire in particular,” said Paramjit Uppal, founder of AND Digital.

“AND was built to accelerate the digital capabilities of ambitious organisations, and we’ve done this with a variety of businesses already, including Covéa Insurance, TalkTalk and Matalan.”

“I’m delighted that we’ll be adding over 100 tech and digital jobs in 2019 across West Yorkshire – from graduates looking for their very first roles in technology, to experienced practitioners.”

Calderdale Council’s director for regeneration and strategy, Mark Thompson, added: “Halifax is fast becoming one of the key locations for business growth in the north, and it’s great news that AND Digital has chosen the town’s University Business Centre as the location for their expansion.
