Greensill Capital lands deal for huge North West office space as part of bid to create 200 jobs for regionPublished on Business stage: Scaling, Unlocking
A deal for Greensill Capital to let a huge office space has been announced as part of its plans to create 200 jobs for the North West and expand its presence in the region.
The global fintech firm has sealed a deal that will see it take the Daresbury 2100 in Daresbury Park – a 27,212sq ft office space, the largest in the Liverpool City Region so far this year.
Greensill Capital, headquartered in London and founded by Alliance Manchester Business School alumnus and billionaire financier Lex Greensill, has taken a 10-year lease on the office accommodation.
CBRE’s office agency team in Liverpool secured the letting, with the offices having benefited from refurbishment including mechanical, electrical work to all areas.
The letting comes just weeks after Greensill announced plans to expand its tech hub in the North West, creating 227 jobs for the region.
Around half of the new roles will be highly-skilled tech jobs – including data analytics, data science, software engineering and architecture – while the remainder will be operations and central support roles.
Neil Kirkham, Director at CBRE Liverpool, said:
” We are delighted to secure the region’s largest out of town letting this year to an expanding global operator at Daresbury Park.
“We worked closely with the Greensill Capital team from the early stages of the proposed refurbishment on this deal and completed the letting prior to PC of the landlord’s works, demonstrating the company’s confidence in us to deliver office space to a high specification that met their existing and future needs.”
The expansion of its technology hub in Daresbury, Warrington, where it currently employs 245 people, will see the firm build a modern campus designed to attract and retain talent, it said.
Current occupiers at the Park include Ombudsman Services, Knowles Solicitors and Appsense, PM PROjEN & ABB. The on-site Daresbury Park Hotel also provides leisure facilities and a conference venue.
