Asos announced today that it is opening a new office in Birmingham, initially creating 20 new jobs, with a plan for this number to increase over the next year. The new roles will focus on new website development targeting growth areas in France and Germany.
This is promising news for Birmingham graduates. Marek Dobrowolski, Investment Manager at Business Birmingham, explains the city has some 40,000 computer science or business students. “We have been keen to support the company’s move to Birmingham – not only is it a highly successful retailer, but it is also an attractor brand – so people want to work with and for Asos.”
This expansion comes after Asos announced an increase in sales last week. Asos’ Chief Information Officer Pete Marsden said “As a company Asos has grown, despite challenging economic times, because of the innovative approaches we take to meeting our customers’ demands.”
