Global recruitment specialist Robert Walters is set to relocate to new Manchester city centre offices, after consultants OBI found ideal premises that would consolidate their existing operations.
Moving from two separate offices at 3 Hardman Street has enabled the Robert Walters’ team to unite and occupy 5,500 sq ft on the 12th floor of No 1 Spinningfields – the landmark 92-metre office tower offering best-in-class city centre workspace.
Robert Walters will join professional services businesses Squire Patton Boggs, PWC, Browne Jacobson and Brown Shipley at the iconic No 1 Spinningfields, benefitting from bespoke technology, design and catering features for which No1 Spinningfields has become renowned.
No.1 Spinningfields offers flexible office space combined with state-of-the art business facilities and some of the finest hospitality offerings in Manchester. The building is also home to Manchester’s popular rooftop terrace bar and stylish contemporary restaurant, 20 Stories.
OBI represented Robert Walters on the search and acquisition of its new office.
Will Lewis, founding director of OBI, said: “Robert Walters has been based in Spinningfields for 10 years now, with its growing team gradually spreading across two different floors. We have used this move as an ideal opportunity to connect the team across a single floor, up-scale in terms of quality and gain flexibility within the new lease arrangement.”
Robert Walters is a specialist recruitment consultancy which focuses on placing professionals into permanent, contract and temporary positions at all levels of seniority. Established in 1985, the business has a global presence spanning six continents, with its Manchester office leading in recruitment across the city region.
Chris Poole, UK MD at Robert Walters, added: “Our Manchester team are excited to be moving to one of the most iconic and well-connected office buildings in Manchester, but also delighted to be remaining in the Spinningfields district. The quality of our new office building and the amenities on our doorstep are unrivalled and will be instrumental in encouraging our team to return to the office.”
