Financial services company AJ Bell has announced plans to create 200 jobs at its headquarters in Salford Quays. The company already has 500 employees based in the head office. The increase in jobs is being supported by growth, profits grew by nearly 5 million GBP (€ 5.67 million) in the last financial year, and the relocation of the stockbroking part of the business to Greater Manchester. The new roles will cover a range of levels within the company and be located across several operational departments. The jobs will be added throughout 2018.
