Following the successful acquisition of six additional luxury parks across the UK, Countrywide Park Homes has moved offices to Nottingham to accommodate its expanding team.
The company has relocated its head office operation to the former Rushcliffe Civic Centre in West Bridgford, Nottinghamshire from Leicestershire.
The location was chosen as, together with providing the much-needed space for a growing team, it provides excellent transport links and is close to a wide range of local amenities.
Nottingham’s central location within the UK is particularly convenient to the national operator, with their parks spread across the length and breadth of the country.
With the business setting its sights on future growth, the area surrounding West Bridgford also offers access to a large catchment area of highly skilled candidates, facilitating the swift recruitment of additional employees when needed.
The company now employs some 25 staff and 20 additional permanent sub contractors. Six members of the team will be based at the office on a permanent basis, with additional staff working there from time to time, as their schedule requires. The chosen space at the Rushcliffe Civic Centre offers the adaptability to accommodate these flexible requirements.
The recent company expansion prompting the move saw the purchase of the business and assets of Lifestyle Living UK Ltd, increased Countrywide Park Homes’s portfolio of luxury parks to 19.
Anthony Barney, owner and chairman at Countrywide Park Homes, said the relocation has put them in a strong position for the future.
“Having recently increased our portfolio of parks by almost 50 per cent, and with even more ambitious plans for the near future, the business needed a larger head office location that also fitted more closely with our commercial aspirations,” he explained.
“The offices in West Bridgford offered the space we needed together with an inspiring location, with excellent prospects for us to grow our team in future,” he added.
“There is now a real buzz amongst the staff – another short term ambition for the move. I am excited at what we will achieve as a team out of this new headquarters in the months and years to come.”
Countrywide Park Homes also owns and operates Lifestyle Homes NI (Northern Ireland).
