William Hill in Leeds


Right in the middle of the creative heart of the UK sits our Leeds office. Leeds itself is a buzzy, busy place to work and live. A hub for tech, digital and gaming companies – there are also five universities right on our doorstep. And away from work, we’re close to the Yorkshire Dales and of course have got a competitive sports scene with Leeds United and Yorkshire Cricket and Rugby just up the road in Headingly.
