NZ Newswire logoNZ Newswire 17/11/2016

Global accounting software firm Xero is to open an office in Napier early next year.

Havelock North-based boss Rod Drury says it hopes to base 30 support staff as part of its customer experience team and will assess if more opportunities can be developed in the region.

Mr Drury said advancements made it possible for people to advance their technology careers without having to live in major cities.

"We'll be drawing on talent across the Hawke's Bay region, while at the same time lessening the burden on housing and transport in cities like Auckland and Wellington," he said.

Mr Drury said it will be interested to see the level of demand from existing staff to relocate to the provinces.
