The 8,000 sq. ft. offices will be home to over 100 FSB staff

FSB has snapped up a “rich environment for tech talent” after confirming a deal to move into Shoreditch offices previously occupied by William Hill.

William Hill has recently restructured some of its departments and relocated to Tottenham Road, paving the way for FSB to assume control of two floors (8,000 sq. ft.) of office space in the heart of the UK’s ‘tech dev’ community in east London.

The Scrutton Street site (EC2A), expected to be home to over 100 staff, will also feature a fully-functioning betting shop complete with FSB’s latest fleet of SSBTs.

These self-service betting terminals now realise an entire cross-section of customer touchpoints, displaying in-venue content, linking through to EPOS terminals, with a single-wallet account bolstering the bridge to the digital customer experience.

Richard Thorp, FSB’s Business Development Director, said: “We view this as a hugely salient step in the evolution and ambitions of FSB. Shoreditch is a rich environment for tech talent, which makes it a natural habitat for FSB’s industry-leading expertise.

“Milestone digital innovation and differentiation sets us apart from out rivals, so these offices provide the resources and ideal setting in which to keep our portfolio at the cutting edge. The move demonstrates our commitment to building on our stable base by innovating and staying ahead of the market trends for our partners.

“It’s an exceptional building with a strong trading tradition in an area of growing appeal. It’s a happy coincidence when location and vocation converge. We all can’t wait to get the keys to the property.”

Totally Gaming says: FSB is a coming force in the sports betting market – the provider is powering 138.com’s UK facing sportsbook and BetLion’s Uganda launch, as well as working with Paddy Power to provide OTC sports betting facilities to customers of Manila’s flagship Okada Casino Resort.
