The new office will provide a modern, flexible solution for their people and a welcoming s space for both staff and their clients.
The move follows continued investment and growth this year across the firm, including the ongoing expansion of their team in the region, including a number of their senior service line leads.
The Manchester team has grown from one to 15 in the last four years, contributing to the significant national expansion of the wider team which now numbers over 50 specialist staff.
Matt Hodgson, Claritas Manchester Partner, commented on the move: “We’re in our fifth year in Manchester and despite the economic challenges presented by both COVID and a relatively benign economy, we’ve still managed to grow rapidly and employ some of the best talent in the market. Committing to our first long-term lease demonstrates that we’re absolutely committed to the region and see the huge ongoing potential to grow our presence, workforce, and market share. I am clearly biased, but I see a fantastic future for Manchester and the North West in contributing to the future economic growth of our country, and it’s great to be at the heart of that. It’s safe to say there will be a big office opening party, so look out for your invite!’’
As part of the Manchester office redesign, the company is also rethinking the traditional office layout to cater for new and developing ways of working. The space will be repurposed to prioritise meetings, presentations and informal get-togethers between colleagues, clients, and the firm’s wider networks.
Iain Wright, Claritas Partner, and Founder, adds: “We believe it’s important to listen to what our people want to see in the space and how they want to use it, and therefore reflected this in the office rebuild. I am delighted we can make these significant changes and commitment to our Manchester office, supporting our own growth and that of our clients in the region.”
