Facebook To Create 500 Engineering Jobs In London

Facebook is to open a new centre in Soho in a move which will create around 500 engineering jobs in London before the end of this year.

The recruitment drive will see Facebook increase its headcount in London by around 20 per cent, from 2,500 to 3,000 staff members by the end of 2019.

Around 1 in 5 of the new London positions will be based within Facebook’s Artificial Intelligence operations, tracking down and deleting harmful content from the social networking site.

Other new recruits in the capital will work on finding and removing fake accounts, preventing spammy content and deleting abusive posts.

Announcing the new London jobs, Vice President of Facebook for Europe, the Middle East and Africa, Nicola Mendelsohn, said: “Safety is our top priority at Facebook, and over the last two years we’ve substantially increased our investment in this area.”

“These hundreds of new jobs demonstrate not only our commitment to the U.K. but also our determination to do everything we can to keep Facebook safe and secure,” added Ms Mendelsohn.

Welcoming the announcement, the Mayor of London, Sadiq Khan, said: “This investment is great news for the capital and is further proof that London is open to talent and to new investment in our thriving tech sector. I’ve been calling for stronger action by businesses and government to tackle malicious and harmful content, so it’s good to see Facebook taking further steps to protect its users.”
