Social networking giant Facebook has announced that it is to lease a significantly larger office in London.
Currently based in Soho, the London staff of Facebook will move to Covent Garden, where the company has leased 36,000 square feet of office space.
There are currently 70 Facebook employees in the London, though the company is actively recruiting.
Many had thought Facebook would elect Silicon Roundabout in Shoreditch as the site of its new London headquarters, but the company decided not to join the many technology outfits which have recently moved to the area.
Joanna Shields, the company’s Vice-President and Managing Director of Europe, the Middle East and Africa, told the Telegraph: “As Facebook’s growth continues, we are delighted to be expanding our operations in the UK with a move to a larger office in central London next year.
“With over 30 million people using Facebook every month in the UK, and over 750 million globally, we’re excited about the next phase in our development.”
Facebook’s UK office is primarily responsible for sales, while all of the engineering and development of the service is still based in the US, particularly at the company’s headquarters in Palo Alto, California.
Earlier this year Facebook announced that it is to move to a much larger campus in nearby Menlo Park. Employees will start being moved over to the new campus later this summer, the company said.
Facebook’s new headquarters in Menlo Park are in the Sun Microsystems campus. Mark Zuckerberg’s company signed a 15-year lease on the new office space, with an option to buy after five years.
The new facilities are a nine-building campus located at Bayfront Expressway and Willow Road. Facebook has also purchased 22 acres across Bayfront Expressway for future use.
