Shop Direct will open a new London office next year to host people working across data, ecommerce, IT, product and brand.
The 25,000 sq ft space at 111 Buckingham Palace Road will open in summer 2017, with capacity for up to 250 employee. The workforce will comprise a mix of new hires, existing colleagues, and some who will split their time between London and the company’s head office in Liverpool.
Shop Direct, which operates ecommerce sites including Very.co.uk, Littlewoods.com and VeryExclusive.co.uk, will be home to the VeryExclusive team who are currently based in Shop Direct’s Pollen Street showroom.
The new space has been designed by interior design firm SpaceInvader Design.
Alex Baldock, group CEO at Shop Direct, said: “It’ll help us attract even more of the best people and get even closer to our existing partners, as well as forge important new partnerships.
“There’s lots of work to do before we open, but I can’t wait to see the collaborative, digital workspace we’ll create.”
