Hippo Digital, the award-winning full-service digital consultancy, announces that it is expanding its existing midlands presence by opening a Birmingham office. This expansion will provide new digital jobs locally as well as investment in local community initiatives as part of Hippo’s Corporate Social Responsibility agenda.
Tapping into the wealth of talent available in the Midlands will enable Hippo to continue to deliver evidence-based, human-centred, large-scale end-to-end digital transformations in the private and public sectors.
The office will provide a work base for Hippo’s growing team of service designers, user researchers, content designers, UXers, delivery managers, business analysts, product managers, software engineers and data engineers.
With continued expansion across all offices, Hippo is looking to grow to over 400 people in the next financial year.
Over the next year, Hippo will look to achieve the following:
- The recruitment of additional talented digital consultants, mainly from the Birmingham and Coventry areas, to increase our local presence to 50 Hippos.
- A redesign and restructure of the existing office facility in The Southside Building, an 11-storey office block in Birmingham city centre.
- Dedicated local engagement and business development leadership.
