News : Samsung to Create 350 Jobs in Leeds
July 23, 2014 -- Multinational electronics provider Samsung is to create more than 350 jobs in Leeds – one of a number of inward investment projects being announced by Prime Minister David Cameron.
The South Korean conglomerate plans to open a customer call centre on Claypit Lane in the city, which will create 358 customer support roles.
Samsung's announcement comes hot on the heels of French motorway operator Sanef confirming it will create 300 jobs by opening a 28,000 sq ft centre at St John's Centre in Leeds.
Cameron will reveal more details of Samsung's investment in Leeds at the Commonwealth Games Business Conference taking place in Glasgow. A string of other projects will also be announced.
They include Japanese ICT company KDDI investing into Telehouse’s data centre campus at London Docklands and US advertising company Intent Media investing to open an office in the capital.
"This government will continue to work on behalf of every hardworking business in the UK to drum up trade, encourage investment and pave the way for growth so we can generate jobs, pay our way in the world, and create stability, security and a brighter future for our country."
