Delaware has opened its first UK client service delivery “Hub” in Bristol. It is expected that 50 highly-skilled opportunities will be generated, focussed on the design, development and support of innovative business solutions based on SAP and Microsoft technologies. The Hub will further extend Delaware’s business process improvement and related IT services in the UK to help clients optimise business performance and generate a sustainable competitive advantage.
Located within the Bristol Temple Quarter, the Hub will complement a rich array of technology and professional businesses already located in the area. delaware is making a significant commitment to the region through the creation of highly skilled jobs and to working collaboratively with local universities to harness its developing talent pool.
“We look forward to growing Delaware’s team in Bristol and investing in talented individuals who share our values and commitment to delivering exceptional services,” said Ian Greenhalgh, UK & US Managing Partner, Delaware Digital LLP.
The facility is operational and staffed with a variety of IT positions ranging from entry level up to highly experienced professionals.
Delaware has also recently launched its first graduate development programme in the UK. 15 graduates attended an introductory six-week training course at Delaware’s Learning & Development Academy in Belgium, where they joined more than 100 Delaware graduates from across the world, following a variety of technical and business tracks. Their further development and learning will continue in the UK for the next two years.
The delivery hub will adopt a hybrid model of providing both dedicated project/client resources and the option of deploying pooled/shared capabilities. The introduction of the Hub is central to Delaware’s continued strategy to offer a seamless approach to delivering value-centric and sustainable business outcomes.
Delaware has been supported in its move by the West of England Combined Authority. Tim Bowles, Mayor of the West of England, said: “We’re pleased to support Delaware and its investment in our region by providing business intelligence – through Invest Bristol & Bath – including advice on property, links to the universities, networks and events and relocation assistance for its staff. Invest Bristol & Bath will continue to work closely with Delaware to support its growth and ambitions in the region.”
“We are an economically successful region and we support businesses to start, grow and thrive. We’re always exploring how we can do more to help businesses achieve their potential as well as attracting more firms to our region. Therefore, we are delighted to welcome Delaware to the West of England – creating even more opportunities for our highly-skilled residents and increasing our export and trade support activity – both nationally and globally.”
