Leeds to be home for new Williams Lea onshore delivery centre

Global skilled business support services firm Williams Lea announces the grand opening of its 320-person onshore delivery centre on 6 July, 2022. Located in Darwin House at Leeds Valley Park, Savannah Way, LS10 1AB, the centre will deliver centralised, virtual support services to leading legal, financial, and professional services firms.

The Leeds delivery centre is the fifth such location for the global company and will join with the United States operations in Wheeling, WV and Columbus, OH and those in Chennai and Cochin, India to provide world-class business and administrative support to UK and global clients. The four other centres have experienced fast-paced growth in recent years, adding hundreds of jobs in their respective cities.

As the fastest growing city in the United Kingdom, Leeds was selected as Williams Lea’s UK delivery centre location for its access to top talent and vast cultural diversity. The company’s strategy is built on leveraging technology and standardising workflows to provide seamless virtual service for clients all over the world.

Williams Lea CEO Clare Hart said, “As the largest legal and financial hub outside of London, it just made sense for us to establish our new UK operation in Leeds. It is a great place to find top talent to service our leading legal, financial and professional services clients.”

The Leeds delivery centre will be staffed 24/7, and hiring is already underway to fill vacant positions.
