Fashion resale marketplace Depop will increase the size of its UK team by almost a quarter by the end of the 2020.

According to The Telegraph, the company will expand its UK employees to approximately 320, as part of its previously announced expansion across Europe and Asia.

The new hirings will bring the businesses total employee count to 350 by the end of the year, with offices in London, Manchester, New York, Los Angeles, and Sydney.

Sales on the app surged by 85% in 2018 and impressive double-digit growth is set to be maintained this year, according to the group.

The UK tech success story – which counts around a third of British 15-24-year-olds as users and boasts pop star Lily Allen among its fans – said it also has more countries on the Continent in its sights, including plans to launch in Japan and South Korea.

The British Heart Foundation charity has become one of the leading Depop seller during Coronavirus pandemic, having made almost £10,000 for the charity’s vital research through the sale of hundreds of items.
