The company behind London’s Oyster card is to create a wide range of new job opportunities across its two Northamptonshire sites this year.

After the unveiling in January of four new companies - Novacroft, DeploySmart, LoadMore and UCan-Do-It - the Novacroft Group will be looking for talented experts in fields ranging from software development to contact centre management.

Combining its 2014 recruitment plans with last year’s 57 per cent rise in employee numbers means that Novacroft, which has sites in Pitsford and Northampton, will double in size within 24 months, a period in which it has developed innovative solutions for the London Organising Committee of the Olympic Games (LOGOC), West Yorkshire Passenger Transport Authority and the Greater London Authority.

Novacroft cares passionately about being a great place to work. It is an accredited Investor in People and its commitment to employee engagement and development was cited as a key factor when it was recently named Northamptonshire Business of the Year.

Debra Charles, Novacroft founder and chief executive, said: “As a business we are committed to helping our public sector clients get more for less and I am convinced that providing a stimulating, supportive and fun place to work helps our people work together to give their best and get the best for our clients.”
