Facebook is now set to create 800 new jobs in London in 2018, opening up a new office Rathbone Place which is sett become the company's biggest Engineering hub outside of the US.  

This move will increase Facebook's UK workforce of over 2,300 people, with the UK's chancellor Philip Hammond stating that this is a "sign of confidence" in the country despite the uncertainty surrounding Brexit. 

The new London office will primarily house engineers and developers as well as marketing and sales teams. The building will also house LDN_LAB, a scheme that is designed to accelerate the development of technology startups, hosting three-month programmes that will support around 20 startups in 2018. Facebook is currently looking for five-six startups to join their first programme (application here).
