We’re thrilled to announce our move to The Paper Exchange building in Belfast, which will offer the latest sustainable, modern and state-of-the-art facilities including wellness facilities and a modern café. 

“Belfast is the latest city, alongside Bristol, Birmingham, Leeds, London, Cardiff and Manchester, to benefit from the significant investment we’re making to transform our workplaces for colleagues and to attract the talent of the future.”
