The Rank Group, the leisure and gaming company which includes brands such as Mecca Bingo and Grosvenor Casinos, have announced plans to open a contact centre in Navigation House, Victoria Quays creating 60 jobs after relocating fro London.
Recruitment for the positions is underway with the contact centre due to open September 2016.
Customer services director Liam Smith, commented,
“Rank looked carefully at a number of locations for our new customer services hub, and Sheffield was chosen primarily for two reasons, its skilled and competitive workforce and the investment in the city’s regeneration and development.
“The new Rank Customer Service Hub, which will open in September, represents a significant investment by the group and we look forward to a long and successful relationship with Sheffield.”
Councillor Leigh Bramall, deputy leader and cabinet member for business and economy, said:
“Attracting a company of Rank’s size, history and ambition shows that companies want to do business in Sheffield and in this case, move their customer service operation from London to the city.
“This relocation will create 60 jobs in the heart of the city and shows Rank, and a growing number of other major blue chip companies, share in our vision for Sheffield.”
Edward Highfield, director of Creative Sheffield, added:
“Our inward investment team has been working hard to secure this move and will also support Rank as it begins to recruit to its new offices.
“It’s great to see that the firm recognises the opportunity Sheffield presents to fast-growing businesses.
“Creative Sheffield will continue to work to create a vibrant, successful economy for Sheffield and build on this success, and talks with a number of other major companies are progressing well.”
