Facebook is adding 800 jobs in London

Facebook is not worried about Brexit as the tech giant unveils plans to create 800 new jobs in London

Business News: The company is adding 800 tech jobs in London over the next year as it establishes its biggest engineering hub outside the U.S. The announcement coincided with Facebook opening a new office in the centre of the city.

Once the new jobs are filled, Facebook will employ 2,300 people in London.

“Facebook is more committed than ever to the U.K.,” said Nicola Mendelsohn, Facebook’s senior executive in Europe.

That commitment will give an important boost to the U.K. tech sector, coming as it does at a time of significant nervousness among British companies about what Brexit will mean for their business.

Britain is due to leave the European Union in March 2019 and businesses still have little clarity over the country’s future relationship with the EU.
