Deloitte opens London office in Tech City for digital team

Deloitte has become the latest high-profile company to open an office in London’s Tech City, moving part of its digital team to a building in Clerkenwell.

The accountancy firm’s Technology Studio is situated on Clerkenwell Green, and will house 170 of its digital team. The London office building features an experimental digital wall, which will enable Deloitte to test technology across a variety of devices, and client apartments. The client apartments will provide Deloitte’s staff with a dedicated space in which they can work and collaborate with customers.

Tech City has attracted a number of big companies to its offices, with Tesco, Unilever and William Hill just a few of the brands to make the move to the area.

As a company, Deloitte has seen its digital arm grow by 50 per cent in the past two years. It has 15 offices spread across five continents and a 400-strong digital team.

Commenting on the move to the Tech City office, Royston Seaward, Deloitte partner, told the London Evening Standard: “We have created a physical space which allows a modern style of working in collaboration with our clients.

“We’ve moved to where we can attract the right kind of talent with the right skills to support our digital growth,” he added.
