Officially unveils new headquarters in Birmingham
The Advanced software group has officially launched its new Midlands HQ at the Mailbox in Birmingham, and has embarked on hiring 1,000 new staff across the UK over the next 18 months.
The jobs drive is targeted at both graduates and non-graduates of all ages and backgrounds looking to pursue a career in IT.
Four hundred of the new roles will be based in the Mailbox in Birmingham. Occupying 45,000 sq ft of space on the building’s third floor, it is one of the city’s largest commercial accommodations on a single floor.
Gordon Wilson, CEO, Advanced said: “The launch of our new Birmingham office is a key milestone in our business growth strategy and the talent acquisition programme represents a great opportunity for individuals considering a career in IT.
“We are passionate about identifying dynamic, high performing and motivated individuals who are invaluable to our future expansion and who will make a major contribution to our company culture. Birmingham is the clear choice given it has the UK’s largest regional urban economy and is the most popular destination outside the South East for mass millennial migration.”
Advanced has grown to a £750 million revenue company and was acquired by Vista Equity Partners in March 2015. Advanced currently employs 2,000 people and its customers include Virgin Trains, Harvey Nichols, Birmingham Children’s Hospital and Carewatch.
