Sigma To Create 700 Finance Jobs In Birmingham

Sigma, a Redditch-based outsourcing firm, is to create around 700 finance jobs in Birmingham by the end of 2016 as it expands its operations and opens new offices in the city.

By the end of this year Sigma will employ more than 500 people at existing offices in Prospect Hill, Redditch and new offices at Priory Queensway in the centre of Birmingham. After recruiting 200 new people this year, the company expects to advertise a further 500 jobs in Birmingham over the course of 2016.

The firm’s chief executive, Tim Freeman, explained why Sigma was expanding and what sort of people they are looking for:

“Birmingham is booming and the city is on the cusp of becoming an even more important economy and centre for business in the UK. That makes it a hugely exciting time for us to be expanding and investing into the centre of Birmingham. It represents the beginning of a new chapter as we continue to grow our already significant 'white label' client base.”

“To achieve that, we need to recruit the best people and we plan to have established a team of almost 750 in the city by the end of 2016. Those roles will be spread across middle and senior management, contact centre staff and specialist commercial and finance jobs. It is a move that also makes us fit for growth as it allows us to expand our team and the services we provide to our clients. Overall, we are delighted to be delivering fresh career opportunities for people in and around the city as we look to the future,” added Mr Freeman.

The news from Sigma follows quickly after the BBC announcement of 300 new jobs in Birmingham - with many of the opportunities which are up for grabs being on offer as entry level positions for young people in the West Midlands.
