U.K.-Based Technology Company Expands into the Columbus Region, Creating 50 New Jobs
Columbus, Ohio (September 26, 2022) — BJSS, a world-class technology and engineering solutions company, has announced plans to expand into the Columbus Region, creating 50 new full- and part-time information technology jobs, with hiring to start in the coming months. This year BJSS was recognized as one of the world’s leading consulting companies in Forbes “World’s Best Management Consulting Firms” report.
Headquartered in Leeds, the U.K.-based company BJSS has delivered high-quality technology solutions to the world’s leading companies for nearly three decades. The company is expanding into the U.S. with its first Midwest location, with other offices in New York City and Houston, as well as Europe and Australia. BJSS is expanding into the Midwest to continue its sustainable international expansion strategy and to tap into the Columbus Region’s skilled workforce. The company will finalize its location in the Columbus Region after hiring commences. Operations will begin remotely and transition to a hybrid work model once a physical location is established.
“When BJSS decided that we needed a location in the United States, the Columbus Region rose to the top of the list as a strategic tech hub to evaluate,” said Glynn Robinson, chairman of BJSS, Inc. “We found the market to be welcoming and the right environment for us to grow our business.”
The Columbus Region has benefited from $17 million in fixed investment from U.K. companies over the last ten years, with 2,922 full-time employees currently working at U.K.-based companies in the Region.
“We welcome UK-based BJSS’ decision to choose Ohio for its first Midwest operations, which will bring one of the world’s leading technology and engineering solutions companies to the Columbus Region,” said J.P. Nauseef, JobsOhio president and CEO. “These new operations in the Columbus Region will bring 50 new jobs that will play an essential role in BJSS’ efforts to improve efficiencies and customer experience for its clients throughout the globe.”
