UK home assistance provider, HomeServe, has moved more than 350 staff into a new 29,000 sq ft facility in Aspect Business Park, Nottingham.
HomeServe’s new base in Aspect House will accommodate all of the company’s 350 Nottingham-based staff, including People who moved across to the company from Home Energy Services, which was bought by HomeServe in 2015.
The new facility will also house a new state-of-the-art training centre for HomeServe’s national network of class-leading gas engineers who keep life moving for the company’s 2.2million UK Customers.
The move has been supported by Nottingham City Council, and HomeServe has been working with its transport team to ensure staff have a range of travel options to get to work, as well as providing support with recruitment.
Greg Reed, CEO of HomeServe Membership, said: “The new facility in Nottingham is a fantastic new addition to our business and, having spoken to many of our People, I know how excited they are about the move to Aspect House.
“This has been something we’ve been working on for a long time and it’s going to be a big part of HomeServe’s commitment to growing our business and helping to keep our Customers’ lives moving.
“This investment reaffirms our commitment to growing our business in Nottingham and the East Midlands and we’d like to pay special thanks to Nottingham City Council, which has given us a huge amount of support as part of this move.”
HomeServe’s Nottingham-based People moved into Aspect House last week and gas engineer training is expected to begin at the facility in the new year.
The building will be officially opened at a special event later this year.
Lorraine Baggs, head of inward investment at Invest in Nottingham said: “We’re really proud to have worked in partnership with HomeServe and Nottingham City Council to facilitate HomeServe’s expansion within Nottingham, sourcing the best site location and providing support with recruitment and employee travel packages.
“The decision to remain in Nottingham is testament to the city’s reputation as a major UK hotspot for business.”
Councillor Sam Webster, portfolio holder for business, education and skills at Nottingham City Council said: “Today’s move is the culmination of sustained political support and hard work by Nottingham City Council and HomeServe and marks an important step in the company’s growth and investment in the city.
“With its excellent transport links and local workforce, Bulwell is an ideal location for growing businesses to choose and this is very positive news for Nottingham North. What makes today’s news especially rewarding is knowing the level of collaboration which has helped make it possible, from senior leadership to planning, transport property and employment hub teams.
“I’d like to take this opportunity to wish HomeServe the very best and to reinforce the Council’s message to businesses thinking about expanding their operations in Nottingham that we value you and the contribution you make to the local economy and to providing local people with employment opportunities.”
Nottingham-based commerical property agents Innes England brokered the deal alongside joint agents GVA on behalf of Rushcliffe Developments.
