Facebook Declares Hiring Employees in the UK, London

More than half of the new jobs will be in technology, including software engineering and data science, said Nicola Mendelsohn, vice president of Europe, Middle East and Africa on Facebook.

"The UK is a world leader in both innovation and creativity", she is expected to say.

"We know that there has been some uncertainty about Britain's future and we believe that the United Kingdom is an important place for us to invest", Sandberg said.
