Siemens Financial Services is moving its UK headquarters from Harrow, Middlesex to Stoke Poges, Buckinghamshire. The company will also be moving offices currently located in Thame, Bracknell and Tonbridge to the new location. Some 200 employees will be based at the new office, which will be fully operational from 21 August 2006.
The company says that following a recent acquisition and significant organic growth Siemens Financial Services has outgrown its Harrow HQ. The new and expanded office will increase the company’s ability to deal more efficiently and effectively with an ever increasing volume of new customers and business. The company is also looking to recruit a significant number of new members of staff across a wide range of roles; including: customer service, business processing, collections, marketing and sales.
Jonathan Andrew, Chief Executive of Siemens Financial Services said, “The move will enable us to continue to augment and innovate the service we offer our customers, whilst at the same time provide a better working environment for our employees. It will also ensure we have the flexibility to capitalise on the exciting opportunities afforded to us as we continue to grow the business.”
He adds, “As we continue to grow, our need for high calibre employees increases. Our ability to deliver great customer service is in the hands of our people – to ensure our customers have a truly exceptional customer experience we must have team players who are dynamic and have a can-do attitude.”
The office will be officially opened by Alan Wood, the Chief Executive of Siemens plc on 15 September at an event to which Siemens Financial Service customers will be invited. The company’s offices in Havant, Stansted, Bristol and Wilmslow remain unaffected.
