What we offer

 

Our brand new central London office has a vibrant, fun and collaborative start-up feel. You’ll feel part of something fresh and totally focused on technology. But you also get the benefit of being immersed in William Hill’s brand and products, as lots of your stakeholders are onsite. You’ll have tech and business colleagues in our international offices – so there may be occasional travel in your role – and the chance to explore global career opportunities too.

 

William Hill in London

 

We couldn’t be closer to the action in our London office. A 2-minute walk from Tottenham Court Road station, round the corner from Soho and Oxford Street means you’ll never be short of anywhere to go for a lunchtime stroll or a post-work drink. There’s plenty of green space too with Regent’s Park and Hyde Park not far away at all. Working in our London office you’ll also benefit from a heavily discounted Zone 1 – 6 travel card so you’ll be whizzing around London in no time.
