Today we officially opened our new Leeds office and announced 60 new high-skill jobs to be created immediately as part of a global recruitment drive.  Our new Leeds base is located in the Pinnacle building in the heart of the city’s business district, and we’re seeking to fill the new positions over the next two years.

The opening of our new Leeds office comes at a very exciting time of expansion for Global Shares in the UK and globally. We’re a global leader for the equity incentive services industry, and a ‘Best in Tech’ Great Place to Work® accredited workplace, with a people-centric, friendly, entrepreneurial culture. Our growth over the past couple of years has been enormous and looking ahead the sky really is the limit in terms of our future growth opportunities. Our decision to invest in Leeds is part of our continued growth strategy for the UK, and more widely the EMEA region, and allows us to provide even more local expertise and support to our growing client base. The city has a thriving economy and impressive growth plans for the future, offering a highly educated and skilled workforce, a large talented pool of tech graduates, a vibrant quality of living and rich cultural heritage. It’s an attractive place to do business and we look forward to seeing our new Leeds base thrive.

J.P. Morgan’s investment in Leeds with the Global Shares office launch builds on our reputation as the leading UK financial services centre outside of London, with The Bank of England, The UK Infrastructure Bank and the Financial Conduct Authority all locating major operations and UK hubs in the city recently. Leeds has a strong heritage in financial services, and we continue to attract innovators shaping the future of the industry through our deep talent pool, strong universities and our thriving digital sector.

It’s fantastic to see a leading Foreign Direct Investor making a significant commitment to Leeds here in the Northern Powerhouse. This is a huge vote of confidence in our region, building on our existing strengths in financial services and further quality jobs for local people. Leeds is in the middle of inward investment boom, with West Yorkshire recording 85% rise in the number of Foreign Direct Investment (FDI) projects between 2012-2016 and 2017-2021 according to our recent report.
