Dutch-owned software provider TOPdesk has announced a further investment of up to £2.3million in its Manchester operations.

TOPdesk, which creates service management software and is based in Delft in the Netherlands, has had a base in Manchester since 2014.

Its new office in City Tower creates space for a further 40 jobs, adding to more than 750 people currently employed by the company across 10 countries.

The expansion has been supported by the Department for International Trade in partnership with the region’s inward investment agency, MIDAS.

“TOPdesk’s new expansion in Manchester is a further sign of the city’s growing tech talent,” said Graham Stuart MP, Minister for Investment.

“Increasingly the world’s biggest tech names are looking to the North of England to invest and are solidifying the UK’s position as undisputed tech leader in Europe.”

David Cape-Brown, branch manager and head of recruitment, added: “Our TOPdesk adventure in Manchester has been hugely rewarding so far and location has been a key ingredient of the continued growth of our customer base here in the UK.”
