PwC expands regional presence with Birmingham...

PwC has opened its largest UK office outside London, moving into One Chamberlain Square in Birmingham.

The firm, which occupies the whole of the commercial space in the seven-storey, 172,000 sq ft office building, said the move is part of its ongoing investment in its regional presence.

There has been significant growth in the Midlands in particular, with PwC's Birmingham team now comprising more than 2,000 colleagues, as the company moves towards a target of 2,300 employees in the city by the end of 2020.

A major push across the UK has seen the organisation expand its total workforce to more than 10,000 staff outside London. It is planning investment of £140 million in people, quality, training, technology and upskilling throughout the 2019-20 financial year.

Offering some detail on its new site in Birmingham, PwC said it wanted to create a space that is "fit for the future of work" and provides high-quality facilities for colleagues and clients, as well as the community interests with which the company is associated.

The workplace was designed to give staff and clients a choice of flexible and tech-enabled amenities.

This investment in Birmingham complements other initiatives PwC has undertaken in cities like Bristol, Leeds, Manchester and Edinburgh. It is due to open a new Belfast office towards the end of the year in response to recent growth in Northern Ireland.

Kevin Ellis, the firm's chairman and senior partner in the UK, said: "We are committed to working with government and the public and private sectors to play our part in building a vibrant and sustainable economy across the UK.

"By 2021 we plan to have added 1,000 new roles in Birmingham, and we're moving quickly to reach this target with 700 of these new jobs already created."

Globally, the PwC network encompasses firms in 158 countries, employing more than 250,000 people.
