UK ISP TalkTalk Hails Addition of 350 New Jobs at Salford HQ

Broadband ISP TalkTalk has announced that they’ve managed to create 350 new jobs in the North West as part of a recent recruitment drive, which formed the backdrop for the relocation of their HQ from London to Salford (Manchester) in order to support the next phase of their growth and cut costs.

Since February 2019, TalkTalk said it had filled 591 roles within the business, recruiting 350 new hires, and has achieved 96% offer acceptance. This includes several senior leadership roles such as the appointment of a new Head of Data and Head of Customer Insights. These new starters bring the total headcount in the Soapworks HQ site in Salford Quays to more than 1,800.

On top of that the internet and phone provider has become a member of the UK Government’s Northern Powerhouse Partner Programme, which they see as “reinforcing [their] commitment to growing the economy in the North of England.” We should of course caveat that not everybody who worked in their London HQ chose to move up to Manchester (around 500 staff were affected), meaning some people in the capital lost their jobs.

Tristia Harrison, CEO of TalkTalk, said:

“Joining the Northern Powerhouse Partner Programme is another clear demonstration of our commitment to the North as we continue to build on our heritage in the region. The success of our Soapworks site in Salford has been tremendous, exceeded expectations, and has enabled us to attract and retain the very best talent as we establish our HQ.

As a major employer in the North and an infrastructure provider across the region, we look forward to working with other partners and the local community. We are proud to be in a position to drive growth and create new opportunities in the region, strengthening the North’s position as a hub for talent, technology and business excellence.”

End.

    It would be interesting to know whether there is a net increase in the total number of jobs within the TalkTalk HQ or whether this is simply recruitment to fill vacancies created by people unwilling to relocate from London.
