Online gambling company Sky Bet has announced that it is to renew its lease on its site in Sheffield and will create a further 160 jobs. The company has signed a five year lease and the latest round of expansion will be the third occasion since the business was established in 2015. Earlier in 2017, Sky Bet also added more jobs at its premises in Leeds. A spokesperson for the business commented that a major reason behind the decision to renew the Sheffield lease was the excellent availability of transport links which can sustain future development.
