Expanding technology consultancy establishes base in London

Hippo Digital, a Leeds-headquartered technology consultancy, has extended its presence into London by opening an office in the capital.

It is in response to a rise in the number of its people working close to the city and the new client opportunities the capital offers.

The launch of this London hub follows the opening by Hippo Digital earlier this year of a base in Birmingham, as well as expansion of its HQ in Leeds.

The new office is located close to Chancery Lane and will be home to the company’s growing number of London digital consultants.

Since its foundation in 2016, the growing tech business has increased its team to over 300 people on the back of significant new client contract wins across the UK.

Chief operations officer, Lara Longhurst, said: “We’ve significantly grown our London presence over the last year to over 40 Hippos and will continue to provide new opportunities for London-based individuals to join our growing business.

“We’re excited to be able to officially launch our London office, creating an opportunity for improved face-to-face collaboration or for those who want a change from working from home.

“As a people-focused business, we believe we offer great career opportunities for people who want to work on digital transformations in the public and private sectors and are excited about tapping into the talent that London has to offer with a view to expanding the business to over 400 Hippos in the next financial year.”
