Global ICT and cloud provider invests in new UK office covering almost 16,000sq feet of floor space in New Castle House
Nottingham, 12 January 2016, Interoute, owner-operator of one of Europe's largest networks and a global cloud services platform, has today announced that it is to open an office in New Castle House in Nottingham city centre.
The new office will bring together employees from Interoute's existing offices on the outskirts of Nottingham, as well as staff from the Derby office of the recently acquired Easynet. The new office will also help Interoute attract new talent thanks to the improved transport links and city centre location.
Gareth Williams, CEO of Interoute, said: "We are delighted to be expanding our Nottingham presence, which is a key skills base for our finance and sales operations."
Interoute’s new Nottingham office will house group finance and UK sales employees and will be home to the Interoute Academy Programme, which sources the brightest and boldest graduates who will lead the next generation of Interoute's customer engagement team.
James Keeton, agency director at JLL, the global real estate company responsible for letting the new office to Interoute, commented, “This fast-growing organisation has been present in the Nottingham area since 2010 and is looking to take advantage of a wider talent pool attracted by a city centre location. The new office is an imposing Art Deco building that has been recently refurbished by the landlord, London-based institutional fund CCLA, to become arguably the highest quality space seen in the city to date.”
