Zen expands with a new office in Leeds

Date published: 26 April 2019

Zen, the UK’s largest independent telecommunications and technology service provider, has announced the opening of its new Leeds office in the heart of the city, as part of its expansion and commitment to the Northern Powerhouse.

Widening its catchment area to recruit key skills to accelerate growth, the 500+ employee strong organisation is looking to expand recruitment, hiring new talent to take on new roles in the Leeds office. Available roles cover a wide range of skills and experiences, focusing initially on Technology and Business Development.

New recruits will undertake intensive training before starting to ensure Zen continues to give customers best in class service – maintaining the company culture of happy staff, happy customers, happy partners.

Paul Stobart, CEO, Zen said: “We’re incredibly proud to be opening our first office outside of Rochdale and are excited to welcome our new Leeds colleagues into the Zen family. With our origins in Rochdale, we know the incredible talent and resources available in the north, which are often overlooked by London-based technology companies.”

The expansion is a part of its ambitious plans to take on the big four players in the telecommunications industry and become a £150m business within the next four years. The company is looking for substantive growth in 2019, after announcing an annual turnover of £71m for 2018, up 11% from the previous year.

Stobart continues: “As we continue to grow, the most important thing is to scale in a way that is flexible and sustainable. We put our people and our customers at the heart of everything we do and remain committed to delivering an exceptional customer experience.”
