The firm is launching operations in Manchester and is looking to expand its staff headcount from 25 to 40.

They will be working with businesses in the area including Monzo, Auto Trader and St James Place Wealth Management on top of their range of existing employers such as the NHS, New Look and Hello Fresh.

“Manchester, as a metropolitan, vibrant city with a flourishing start-up scene, is the perfect place to start.

“We already work with a number of businesses in the area and cannot wait to roll-out our platform more widely.”
