William Hill in Leeds


Leeds has established itself as a hub for tech, digital and gaming companies, and we’re proud to be part of its evolution.


There’s a great buzz around the city, with fantastic places to shop, eat and socialise. And for those who love the great outdoors, we’re also close to the Yorkshire Dales. Last, and by no means least, Leeds is also a huge sporting city with Leeds United, Leeds Rhinos and Yorkshire Cricket Club all on our doorstep.


We’re delighted to have welcomed our teams back to the office, and have robust Covid19 measures in place to ensure the safety and wellbeing of all staff. We offer a balanced approach to office and home working – now and for the long-term future – with staff given the opportunity to split their work 80-20 between home and the office.
