Facebook Announcement

Tech company, Facebook recently announced its decision to set up a new London office. The office would result in the creation of close to 800 new jobs for the country by 2018.

The office is likely to be Facebook’s biggest engineering hub outside the confines of the US. It is scheduled to open during the company’s tenth year in the UK.

If Facebook’s logistics are to be believed, close to 2,300 people will work for the UK branch of the company by the end of next 2018.

Speaking of the initiative, Facebook’s vice-president for Europe, Middle East, and Asia stated that the company was “more committed than ever to the UK”.

She added that Britain’s “entrepreneurial ecosystem and engineering excellence” had made it the perfect location for any technology firm. Facebook received a warm welcome from the UK tech community.

Speaking on behalf of techUK, an organization that represents 950 technology firms in the UK, Julian David stated that the move showed the company’s faith in Britain despite the uncertainty of Brexit.

Facebook is set to occupy a seven-floor building located at Rathbone Place. The location is close to Oxford Circus in central London, and was designed by the architect responsible for the Guggenhein Museum in Bilbao- Frank Gehry.

The building has been created to house both engineers and developers along with Facebook’s marking and sales teams. Interestingly, the building has sectioned off a separate incubator space dedicated to start-ups called LDN-LAB.

Facebook has plans to invite UK-based start-ups to participate in a three month program designed to help them set up their own business.

The company stated that its experts from fields such as engineering, product, and partnerships will be on hand to guide participants during the program.
