Google Plans to Open Office in Manchester, UK

Another day and another Google office story to post. A story from Cambridge Reports alerts us to the fact that Manchester will serve as Google's main "base" (no pun intended) "outside of London" for the English Midlands, northern England, Wales and Scotland.

The company, which employs nearly 5,000 people worldwide, will open its Manchester office with a small number of specialist staff, but plans to recruit a larger team as demand for its services grows.
