User experience agency Sigma is expanding into Cambridge and recruiting new staff for its Macclesfield HQ.

The new office will open in April and is near its long-standing client, AstraZeneca.

Three key roles within the unit have already been filled – Francis Rowland will be UX designer, Antony Quinn will work on service development in the health market, while Jennifer Fuller has been appointed business development consultant.

Sigma has won a number of new clients in the past six months, including, GB Group, and Royal London.

It already employs 40 people in its Macclesfield head office.

MD Hilary Stephenson said: “A host of new client wins have meant that we’re now growing our team further in the North West, in order to support the flow of new work.

“Last year was brilliant for Sigma and we can’t wait to see how the business will progress in the next 12 months.”
