Eclipse team takes part in Run for IT in Wrocław

Earlier this month, some of our team from the Wrocław office took part in Run For IT – Bieg IT – Wrocław. The event is a 10 km run aimed at IT Industry employees who are interested in spending their time actively.

This year it took place on Sunday 13th of October and nearly 500 participants took part. Along with the main event, there are several accompanying events for people to take part in including the Bajtel Run, a run for kids in two categories. Under 7’s take part in a 100m run and over 7’s take part in a 400m run. There is also a PC throw, where participants take turns throwing a Desktop PC tower as far as their able to.

Danuta Twaróg, one of our Scrum Masters took part in the PC throw contest and won the women’s competition!  A big congratulations goes out to her and the rest of the team who all took part in this year’s competition.

Eclipse Expands into Manchester with a New Office Location

Manchester’s world class reputation as a city to do great business in has been growing rapidly, and the UK’s second city has been attracting an increasing number of businesses. Eclipse will be joining companies like Google, Amazon, Freshfields, and Microsoft who have all opened offices in Manchester.

The exciting new location is supported by the facts. The high and increasing volume of technology and digital firms based in Manchester shows a direct comparison with other cities in The United Kingdom and just how well it is performing. Huge population growth, and some of the highest job’s growth in the country, Manchester seems to be an obvious choice for any growing business.

 

 

The new location based out of WeWork Dalton Place follows the opening of the incredibly successful Eclipse Wroclaw office, based in Poland’s ‘SILICON VALLEY’.

The Manchester office gives Eclipse a great base in the North West and expands the businesses services around Conversion Rate Optimisation and UI/UX Optimisation services being offered.

By tapping into the pool of incredibly talented people who have chosen to make Manchester home, it’ll be little time before we’re announcing the expansion of the Manchester office.

If you’re looking for support with CRO, UX, UI or would like to discuss how to offer the best commerce experience to your customers, Eclipse can help. We’ve got a team of passionate experts who’d be happy to work with you in finding a tailored solution.

Let's Talk

UK Group moves into Poland’s “SILICON VALLEY” with New Campus Office and Recruitment Venture

We are excited to announce that we have opened spacious new offices in Wroclaw, Poland.

The new campus office demonstrates Eclipse’s dedication to the high-tech region and supports the rapid expansion of the e-commerce and recruitment company.

It is part of a growth strategy that focuses on talent, training and staying at the forefront of digital commerce, tapping into the deep pool of talent and technology graduates in the Wroclaw area.

The stylish contemporary workspace is home to more than 75 specialists, with capacity to almost double the workforce over the next few years.

The new cutting-edge campus enables the company to establish smart-working practices for the benefit of Polish and UK-based colleagues and clients.

At the same time, HR GO Recruitment has opened its first branch in Poland to recruit UK-based Polish workers wishing to return home, as well as well-qualified people in Poland looking for high-quality roles in the UK. It will initially specialise in technology.

Jack Parkinson, HR GO plc executive chairman, celebrated his birthday by cutting the ceremonial red ribbon to formally open the Wroclaw campus.

“I’m very impressed by the new campus and pleased that we are at the heart of Wroclaw’s burgeoning high-tech district,” he said. “This really is Poland’s Silicon Valley.”

Roddy Barrow, HR GO plc Group Managing Director said: “Our significant investment in the Wroclaw campus and Eclipse Academy, shows our confidence in the huge talent pool that exists in Poland.

“We expect more sales growth from expanding our operations in Poland, including the new recruitment office, with the aim of Brexit-proofing our business. We are looking to other countries where we can also add value.”

Steve Liddle, Eclipse Managing Director, said: “This exciting event represents much more than a great new workspace for our Polish team. For us, it’s the first step on a new strategy that shows our commitment to talent, training and offering our customers the best possible service. It also underlines our commitment to international expansion.”
