IT solutions provider and digital specialist GFT, which has locations in 16 countries worldwide, has moved into its new regional innovation hub in Manchester.

The organisation, whose services span consulting and development across cloud engineering, AI, IoT and more for the financial services, insurance and manufacturing sectors, is in the process of launching several regional hubs nationwide.

Its new Manchester location, which was moved into yesterday (September 6th) is found in the Spinningfields district, home to many financial services leaders.

GFT already has offices in countries including China, Brazil, USA, Switzerland and Spain - employing a total of 7,000 - and was launched in Germany in 1987. It is looking to make 100 hires at its Manchester location, with the intention to expand beyond that in response to demand.

Carlton Hopper (pictured), UK Managing Director of GFT, said: "I believe the new GFT regional customer innovation hubs will enable us to help more clients to achieve their technology modernisation objectives quickly and confidently. We are on an aggressive recruitment drive to support rising client demand. Manchester, here we come."
