Hippo opens London office


Hippo, one of the UK’s fastest-growing technology consultancies, has officially opened a new city office in London in response to a rise in the number of its people working close to the city and the new client opportunities that the English capital offers.

London remains the most attractive destination for tech talent looking to relocate, with the UK tech sector recently retaining the #1 spot in Europe and third in the world, as sector resilience brings continued growth.

The launch of their London hub follows the opening by Hippo earlier this year of a new office in Birmingham, as well as expanding their present office in Leeds, where they are headquartered. The new office is located close to Chancery Lane and will be home to their growing number of London digital consultants.

Since its foundation in 2016, the rapidly growing tech business has increased its team to over 300 people on the back of significant new client contract wins across the UK.

Welcoming the London launch, Hippo’s Chief Operations Officer Lara Longhurst said:

“We’ve significantly grown our London presence over the last year to over 40 Hippos and will continue to provide new opportunities for London-based individuals to join our growing business. We’re excited to be able to officially launch our London office, creating an opportunity for improved face-to-face collaboration or for those who want a change from working from home.

As a people-focused business, we believe we offer great career opportunities for people who want to work on digital transformations in the public and private sectors and are excited about tapping into the talent that London has to offer with a view to expanding the business to over 400 Hippos in the next financial year”.
