Software firm Godel plans recruitment drive after big 2016
Manchester-based software developer Godel has vowed to embark on a 100-job recruitment drive in 2017 after achieving annual turnover growth of 62 per cent.
Following a string of high-profile deals, including Virgin Holidays, Jet2 and Rentalcars, the company pulled in more than £9m during the 12 months to December 2016.
This represented a £5.5m rise on the previous year.
Godel has now announced its intention to hire 100 people across its offices in Manchester and Minsk, Belarus over the next 12 months, bringing its total workforce to 450.
Neil Turvin, chief executive, Godel, says: “Our clients have one thing in common – the need for technology to scale at the same rate or faster than their market and business demands.
“Quality of our software development is paramount over scale alone.
"Whether they need high quality resource to supplement an existing team internally, or they need to create a brand new high performing software development team, Godel provides the ‘agile’ skill set, technology expertise and manpower to deliver the solution quickly.”
He added: “In 2017 technology is the business – digitisation has taken hold in every industry and provides a platform for increased commercial success – we are there to help organisations deliver it quickly and efficiently."
Godel’s growth was attributed to technology trends such as the rising need for organisations to make data-driven decisions.
