With all the talk of Brexit making recruitment companies nervous about the UK’s future as a hub for talent it was refreshing to read that Snapchat are setting up a major operation in London.
Snap’s revenues from countries where there is not a local salesforce will be registered in the UK because they will be handled by sales staff in London run by Claire Valoti, formerly a senior Facebook UK executive.
Ms Veloti said: “We believe in the UK creative industries. The UK is where our advertising clients are, where more than 10 million daily Snapchatters are, and where we’ve already begun to hire talent.”
Good news recruiters – the U.K. is still hiring!
