There has been recent good news for the city of Manchester’s economy since the biggest online gambling company in the world, Bet365, have announced that they have plans to extend their operation in the city, increasing their staff requirement from 60 up to over 150 team members, creating job opportunities for local people.

Boosting Manchester’s Economy

The company, which is based in Stoke, opened their Spring Gardens satellite office last April and originally believed that they would require 60 staff members to man the premises. Originally, they had assumed that the process of interviewing and hiring the necessary workers would take between 6 and 12 months, however now they have realised that there is a need for a lot more employees to deal with growing demand. Already, within the first six months of operation from the new office, the gambling giant had taken on another floor and had hired 25 people more than originally planned. It is due to this expansion that 60 more workers are now required and a new round of recruitment is about to begin.

Benefiting From Manchester’s Talent

Manchester has turned out to be a well of talent for Bet365 as the city has turned out to be home to many high calibre developers who have enabled the company to raise the bar and keep it high. Thanks to the services of the skilled local talent, their new office has rapidly become productive, with the team having established strong working relationships with the rest of the Bet365 team and their close collaboration having enabled the company to successfully deliver some significant work including their brand new HTML5 website.

Bet365’s Next Phase

During their next phase of recruitment, Bet365 are planning on hiring staff at all levels, from project managers and tech leads to team leads and both senior and junior developers, meaning that there will be opportunities for local people who possess relevant technology qualifications.

The unique technical challenges being offered by the company have enabled the firm to attract some of the top talent in the city, and Bet365 boast that there are very few other workplaces in the area where workers can feel as stretched and challenged.

Anyone looking for an exciting and vibrant working environment is sure to thrive with this leader in the world of online gambling. At the present time, the company has five teams which provide software testing and development across the areas of customer account management, trading, gaming and sports and over the course of the rest of this year, the plan is to extend these teams and to look at the potential for middleware and mobile expansions.

During their next phase, Bet365 are also planning on expanding their development work in the city, allowing developers to train in a range of new technologies such as the Go, Elixir and Erlang programming languages – it’s easy to see why roles with the company are so highly coveted.
