Manchester-based SQA Consulting is set to create 75 jobs in the city following a joint adventure with ABC Tech Group.
The joint venture will see the creation of a centre of excellence for software development and will see the company drive recruitment of more than 100 engineers in the Balkans and 75 jobs for various roles in its Manchester-based headquarters. The organisation will also subsume ABC TECH's software development division in Bosnia and Herzegovina and its hubs in Kosovo and Croatia.
Jeremy Round, managing director at SQA Consulting, said: “Our anti-money laundering and terrorist financing products and services are deployed for most account holders in the United Kingdom and Ireland, and this partnership underpins the strong international growth we have seen over the last few years,”
“AML & TF is one of the world’s biggest financial concerns with an estimated cost to the UK government alone of £100 billion a year (UK National Crime Agency).
“Technology is an essential part of the fight against this financial crime and SQA Consulting is proud to work with banks to form national and international defences.”
Steve Ruston, chief transformation officer at SQA Consulting, added: “The new joint venture will allow us to further scale our transformation consulting and product engineering capabilities to keep pace with the needs of cyber security in the global banking and financial services sector, allowing us to grow SQA Consulting in line with the demand we are seeing for our transformation services and software.
“It’s an exciting time and we’re already planning further expansion and acquisitions in the UK, Europe and further afield.”
