RPS, the property consultancy that employs 2,000 staff across 48 offices across the UK and Ireland, is moving back to Wolverhampton, in a move that will bring 100 jobs into the city, with further expansion possible.

RPS’ office in Wolverhampton will house it Architecture, Civil Engineering, Building Services and Landscape Architecture services and is located at a former office site in Tettenhall Road.

Alan Green, managing director for design at RPS said: “It’s great to bring RPS back to the city, we have a lot of history here and are thrilled to be able to open a Wolverhampton base which will further strengthen our West Midlands presence, bring jobs into the area and build on our strong relationships with local clients.”

RPS’s move comes at a time when the City of Wolverhampton is undergoing some significant regeneration projects, including the planned £55m Westside development.

The deputy leader of the city council, Cllr Peter Bilson added: “It is great news that we have been able to attract an interantional company like RPS back to the city. Regeneration in the city is being driven by £3.7bn of investment  either on site or in the pipeline – making us an attractive location for businesses. Most importantly, the return of RPS will provide vital jobs opportunities for our residents.”
