As of June 12, 2018, Snapchat has received the green light to expand its workforce through a joint venture with British media company, MediaWorks.
The partnership allows the app to offer the ability to create jobs in the form of social media content, with a focus on local businesses.
Snapchat also said it would partner with local businesses in its hometown of Bristol to create a job creation platform.
Snap is one of the world’s most popular social media platforms, with nearly 2 billion monthly active users.
The app allows users to share, like, and comment on their photos and videos and post content to their feed.
The company has built a community of thousands of local businesses and has become a global brand.
While the company announced its plans to build jobs, it hasn’t set a firm timeline for when these jobs would be available.
This week, the company released a report that stated the number of people looking for jobs in Bristol has dropped by nearly 50% since the start of the year.
As a result, the city is seeing a drop in the number and type of jobs being created by the company.
“Snapchat is working hard to find the right people to work with and build a successful business, so we have a lot of work to do to meet the needs of the people in Bristol,” Snap CEO Kevin Systrom said in a statement.
“We will keep working with Bristol’s local business community to ensure we are able to meet all of the company’s needs for our new Bristol-based team.”
The company said it plans to open two new Bristol office spaces in 2017 and a new office in 2020.
The Bristol Business Improvement Partnership (BBIP) said it has “a vision to build a world class Bristol-focused digital platform and culture that will drive economic growth, support innovation and deliver better opportunities for Bristol’s workforce.”
According to the BBIP, the Bristol office space is scheduled to open in early 2018.
Bristol Business Development Partnership (BCDP) CEO and co-founder David Rutter said the company is “working hard to make the Bristol-born community feel welcome and supported in its new Bristol digs.”
The BBIPs chief executive said he expects the company to open its Bristol office in mid-March 2018.
“It is not a project we are working on right now but it is a part of our vision to make Bristol more accessible and attractive to local businesses,” Rutter told the Bristol Post.
“Bristol-born entrepreneurs and companies want to see a Bristol-centered city where they can thrive and attract the world to Bristol.”
The partnership between the two companies is expected to create more than 15,000 new jobs across Bristol and Bristol South.
