Sky Bet Putting in £11 Million Into Business Expansion

Internet betting group Sky Betting & Gaming has announced that they will be investing £11 million into new business expansion, which will create more than 200 jobs later this year.

The large investment will go into the production of a new software academy, a customer hub at Leeds City Centre, a commercial academy, and expansions of existing premises. The new jobs will be located within the customer service and technology departments, with an additional 100 spots being placed at the Sheffield Technology Hub.

A large amount of money will be allocated to promote the moves.

Commenting on the expansion Sky Betting CEO Richard Flint said, "With the business performing well we have decided that now is the time to significantly increase our investment in people and facilities. This is a vote of confidence not only in our own plans to make betting and gaming better but also in the health of the Yorkshire economy."
