Global health and care technology firm Tunstall Healthcare has opened its new hub in St Peter’s Square, Manchester. 

Tunstall, which is celebrating its 65th year, is currently recruiting for a range of hybrid working positions that will be based from the new hub in Manchester. 

Quality and testing, software development and business analysis roles are available to complement the existing tech teams based in Yorkshire, Sweden, Germany and Spain. 

As well as mid-senior tech roles, there will be opportunities for graduates and apprentices to join the firm as part of Tunstall’s drive to mentor and train the very best talent in tech, in addition to positions that will offer support to those who wish to retrain or who have been out of work. 

Tunstall Group CEO Emil Peters (pictured with Lord Mayor of Manchester Donna Ludford) said: “This is undoubtedly a huge and exciting milestone for Tunstall as we open our latest UK office space, in the renowned business and technology hub of Manchester. 

“Our new base is the perfect location to serve our customers across the country and in the north west, as well as attracting new talent to the Tunstall brand. 

“A career at Tunstall gives candidates the opportunity to make a real difference in the health and care sector by realising the potential of technology to empower people to have more choice over how they live their lives. 

“Our Manchester base will help us to attract some of the brightest talent in the sector to help us drive our exciting technology roadmap forward, and I’m looking forward to welcoming new colleagues to the business.”
