Broadcaster UKTV has confirmed plans to open a technology innovation hub in Leeds following the rapid expansion of its technology division and the team responsible for its UKTV Play service.
The hub, which is based in the historic Leeming Building in the heart of Leeds, will initially house a team of up to ten specialists but may also house staff from the programming and editorial side of the business in the future. Recruitment is now ongoing for a range of technology roles designed to help grow and develop UKTV’s digital platforms.
Sinead Greenaway, UKTV's chief technology and operations officer, said: “Over the past three years we've completely redesigned our technology infrastructure to ensure we can react quickly to the evolving broadcast landscape and increased complexity of our distribution platforms,”
“Opening a regional technology innovation hub marks the next step in UKTV's long-term growth strategy, enabling us to harness the skills and expertise of talent outside of London and support the creative industries in the regions.”
