BELFAST-based mobile job management service provider WorkPal is creating 12 jobs with the opening later this year of an office in London.

It is the first English office for the business, which provides mobile working solutions for the corporate world, and come in response to surging client numbers in the south of England, including one of its biggest contracts to date.

WorkPal, part of the Megahey family-owned Barclay Group, which also includes Barclay Communications and Barclay Digital Services, already has offices in Belfast, Dublin, Glasgow and New Jersey.

The new London site represents an investment of £500,000 and follows the company's 2021 accounts showing a doubling in sales to £5.4 million.

More than half of WorkPal's clients have been based in England, and its London office will be headed by newly appointed UK sales director Mark Weston, who has spent more than 20 years in the comms sector in roles at Exertis UK Ltd, HTC, Nokia, Microsoft and LG, Symatec and Acer.

Ian Megahey, sales director at WorkPal, said: “The London office has been a long time coming and follows on from a pleasing influx of new clients in that region of the UK, including some of our biggest deals yet.

“Mark will be a great asset to our team with his wealth of experience in the distribution, mobile and SaaS (software as a service) markets. He is the ideal candidate to help us continue our growth and develop new opportunities that really optimise our customer experience and expand our reach into the UK market.”
