It has been revealed that the latest preferred bidder for the London Olympics Main Press Centre and International Broadcast Centre is iCITY. The company plans to use the site as a tech centre with a heavy emphasis on cloud computing, offering recruitment agencies in the area the ideal opportunity to place IT staff into new roles.
The legacy of the Games continues to be questioned, with parts of the park being sold off to private developers so that East London can benefit from continued rejuvenation. Backed by Delancey, iCITY wants to create a centre of cloud computing, offering around 4,000 jobs to IT experts who will help the government grow the area into London’s next up-and-coming technology district.
Gavin Poole, iCITY’s chief executive officer, said that the opportunity to win the bid for the media centre would cement Britain’s place as a leader of tech innovation. “iCITY will provide a sustainable legacy for the local community through the creation of thousands of jobs, apprenticeships and training opportunities. The incredible track record of start-ups and entrepreneurs in East London is growing at an impressive rate, and this is a chance to provide additional connectivity, capacity, investment and highly advanced infrastructure,” he added.
For recruitment agencies working in London, the promise of new tech jobs being developed will be welcomed. For those wanting to place people in a range of positions, the new tech specialist jobs will be the ideal vacancies to take advantage of.
