Lloyd’s has announced that it will be investing in its digitalisation capabilities with the creation of a new hub in Manchester that will aim to be completed by January 2022.
The firm claimed that after an analysis of potential locations where there’s a “critical mass of the talent”, Manchester was a clear choice.
The hub will offer flexible working opportunities for team members to come together to connect and innovate.
There will also be a significant number of digital roles based in Manchester. These will complement the skills and capabilities that already exist across the group’s global network in its offices in Lime Street in London and Chatham in Kent.
Jennifer Rigby, Lloyd’s chief operating officer, said: “We are excited to base our digital delivery capability in a new ‘hub’ in Manchester and attract new talent to Lloyd’s. I’m a proud Mancunian myself, and was delighted when our analysis showed that the City would be the best location to base our new hub.
“The roles we’re recruiting for are opportunities to help transform Lloyd’s market and join an organisation where our teams have the tools, technologies and mindset for truly flexible working. This is an important next step for Lloyd’s and our digital ambitions.”
