William Hill in Leeds 

Right in the middle of the creative heart of the UK sit both of our Leeds offices. 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 Headingley.
