Professional services firm moves to new Leeds office

EY will relocate to a new office in Wellington Place, Leeds, at the end of its current lease at bridgewater Place in this summer.

EY’s Leeds business has seen consistent strong growth in recent years and now employs over 480 people including 39 partners. EY also welcomed 34 graduates and apprentices to the Leeds office in September 2023 as part of the firm’s student recruitment programme.

The new office at 12 Wellington Place will provide a modern workspace with more areas for both in-person collaboration and independent working in support of the firm’s approach to hybrid working.

The move to 12 Wellington Place, named as one of the UK’s most sustainable office buildings by NABERS UK, also supports EY’s sustainability goals. The building features roof-mounted solar panels, LED lighting, and energy from a fully renewable energy source, along with secure bike storage, access to showers and changing facilities, and electric bike and car charging points.

Tim West, office managing partner at EY in Leeds, said: “Our business in Leeds has continued to see strong levels of growth in recent years, and the investment in a new office marks our commitment to maintaining a strong presence in the region.

“With a prime location, excellent transport links, and outstanding facilities, our new office will provide a high-spec working environment for our people as we continue to grow and develop to serve the region’s thriving business community.

“We look forward to welcoming our clients and EY teams to our new premises later in the year.”

JLL and Savills are the joint commercial letting agents, with Avison Young representing EY.
