New Leeds offices leased by Ingeus.
Office deal represents biggest deal on the Leeds market for some time.
Ingeus UK has announced that it is moving to brand new offices in the heart of Leeds. The company has taken a lease on 12,000 square feet of office space within The Gateway. The office property is one of the most popular in the city and already houses some major tenants. Ingeus UK provide aid for the unemployed and aim to get them back into work. The firm has taken the relatively long term lease of 5 years on the office space and plans to move staff into the commercial property sometime within October.
The new offices will provide new space for staff to carry out tasks such as employment advice, employer partnership and administration. Thanks to the new office space Ingeus UK will now be able to offer a more streamlined service specifically matching client’s strengths to relevant jobs.
Commenting on the firm’s decision to move Ingeus’ Yorkshire company director, Mark Taylor, said: “Ingeus has been delivering the Work Programme in Leeds since June, and this move means that we will have the facilities we need to assist local people to get back to work, and support local employers with their recruitment needs from one central, easily accessible location.”
The office deal is one of the most significant in recent times for Leeds as most have been around 5,000 square feet or below. Therefore this new lease of over 12,000 square feet is a huge positive for the future of the Leeds office leasing market.
