International financial technology (FinTech) company, Sandstone Technology which operates across three continents, expanded in Leeds, after more than doubling the business’s UK headcount in 2017.
"Sandstone Technology has been at the forefront of FinTech since before the term was coined. Our Australian heritage ensures Sandstone is leading the innovation space globally and as a result we require the best talent available. When it came to the expansion we looked at where we could find the right people, with the right attitude in a location that offered our staff a fantastic quality of life, and it was then we realised we were already here in Leeds and just needed to expand.
“The region’s location and infrastructure both at a transport and digital communications level have been crucial to both our success and our expansion. Leeds is perfect placed for us to travel to our clients in the major financial centres both North in Edinburgh and South in London. We have also been able to develop some fantastic relationships across the Leeds City Region, particularly with the Leeds Beckett University through which we offer a graduate training scheme - ensuring we are supporting and investing in the talent of tomorrow."
