Thoughtworks brings 80 new tech jobs to Newcastle


A year after the announcement of its new Newcastle office, global tech consultancy Thoughtworks today reveals it will be recruiting for a further 80 jobs, as well as moving into a new space to accommodate its growing staff numbers.

The roles available range from senior to junior positions, including places on the company’s entry-level program, Thoughtworks University, a year long immersive program that trains new recruits in technical and consulting skills.

The new state-of-the-art office has designed by local firm Aptus and has a focus on flexible working, in order to accommodate the new swing to hybrid working that has taken place since the pandemic.

The office will feature flexible meeting areas to host large scale functions and workshops online, in-person or a mixture of the two, a range of different creative and collaborative areas for smaller groups and quiet pods for those needing to work independently. Each area will have the latest technology to enable remote and off-site connectivity.

Thoughtworks’ own research has shown the North East to be amongst the regions which place greatest value on wellbeing in their organization, and the new office will feature various social and entertainment spaces, as well as comfortable areas for Thoughtworkers to relax and unwind. The office will be designed to be accessible for all.

Matt Simons, market director at Thoughtworks said: “As Newcastle continues its rise as a leading UK tech hub, Thoughtworks is committed to establishing a presence in the North East, and will look to make a tangible contribution to the region’s growth. We are keen to further expand and invest in the area and cement its status as a tech hub of the UK.

Elected Metro Mayor for North of Tyne, Jamie Driscoll, added: “Thoughtworks get it. The North East is fast becoming a go-to location for tech companies. It’s excellent news that they’re creating dozens more local jobs, at all levels. This is as much about changing individual lives as it is about boosting the sector and transforming our region. Bravo, Thoughtworks.”
