Global educational publisher Twinkl, which has more than four million members worldwide, is celebrating after opening a new office in Manchester.

The company, which creates online teaching and learning materials for educators and schools, has expanded into the city after recognising the exceptional talent in Manchester in the digital and education sectors.

To celebrate the move Twinkl held a launch event at its new office space at WeWork, on Quay Street, last night (February 13).

Professionals from across the city were in attendance, including colleagues from the surrounding universities, businesses and local schools.

Jonathan Seaton, chief executive and founder of Twinkl, said: “We are really proud to have opened this additional space in Manchester and to have some really talented colleagues based here.

“Manchester is a vibrant and exciting city and the perfect place for us to expand as we continue to develop the digital resources we offer, including some really exciting ongoing work in augmented reality for education.

“It was fantastic that so many people were able to join us to celebrate and we really look forward to building on our connections and forming new partnerships in the city in the future.”

Twinkl has more than 480 team members worldwide, with a head office in Sheffield and an office in Wollongong, Australia.

Four team members are based at the Manchester office but the company has plans to expand the team based there in the upcoming months.
