Price comparison giant MoneySuperMarket Group has secured a new Manchester base as it continues to grow its North West technology operations.
The firm has agreed a 22,600 sq ft deal to occupy the 15th and 16th floors of No. 1 Spinningfields (pictured), and says it is looking to attract the “top engineering talent” in the city.
Last year MoneySuperMarket Group invested in building out its product engineering capabilities as part of its ‘Reinvent’ strategy to improve services enabling people to monitor, switch and save on household bills.
Announcing the deal with Schroder Real Estate, which acquired No. 1 Spinningfields from Allied London in 2017, MoneySuperMarket Group’s chief information officer Tim Jones says: “We’re delighted to have signed on the dotted line with Schroders for No. 1 Spinningfields.
“We’re looking to attract the top engineering talent in Manchester to help us design purpose-driven digital experiences for our customers.
“With our focus on creativity, collaboration and inclusion, we want to create the best space in the city for innovation – connecting engineering to our customers and also to the local community, through our initiatives to support education and develop an increasingly diverse digital workforce.”
The company will join existing tenants at the now 98% let building, including PWC, Browne Jacobson, co-working platform WeWork, beauty bar The Blowout and restaurant and bar 20 Stories.
