A Leeds provider of technology to keep children safe online is relocating to the recently refurbished 2 Whitehall Quay, in Leeds City Centre.

Smoothwall, which supplies digital safety tools to the education and public sectors, will take out a five-year lease on the new space and relocate from its current location at Leeds Valley Park. The new office is within a two-minute walk of Leeds’ main railway station, giving it a solid base for its vision for hybrid working and talent acquisition across the UK.

Gavin Logan, executive vice president for Smoothwall, said: “Our relocation to a beautiful building in the heart of the city centre is a major milestone for the business and gives us a strong foundation to grow, recruit the best digital talent and fully embrace hybrid working. Being a global organisation, having strong transport links in the city was key to our thinking.”
