Recruitment firm TeamJobs on the move as it chooses Fleets Corner for new HQ

Federated Hermes has announced that TeamJobs, the Poole-based recruitment firm, has selected Fleets Corner Business Park for its new headquarters.

The former Dorset Company of the Year (2015) has signed for 3,266 sq ft of newly refurbished space at Fleets Corner’s Fleetsbridge House.

The space is significantly larger than the firm’s current office in Parkstone Road, Poole.

Benefitting from extensive frontage to the A349 Waterloo Road, Fleetsbridge House has recently undergone extensive refurbishment, including the replacement of ceilings and windows and a new reception and break-out area.

In its larger home, TeamJobs will enjoy an open plan office space alongside new cycling storage units and shower facilities.

Jason Gault, CEO, said: “We are looking forward to relocating and upsizing into our new head office at Fleets Corner which is a location and environment that reflects our growth as a business.

“The quality of the offices is first rate, creating a fitting home for our expanding team as we focus on the next stage of the company’s expansion.”

Stephen Bradley, Director, Federated Hermes Limited, said: “It is great to welcome another established local business to our community.

“TeamJob’s decision to move to Fleetsbridge House is testament to the significant work Federated Hermes has done to modernise and establish Fleets Corner as the prime business park in the region.

“Across the offices, warehousing & manufacturing accommodation on site, we are committed to offering spaces suitable for the next generation of businesses.”

TeamJobs has been based at Parkstone Road for 21 years.

It is due to be in its new home by Friday, April 21.

Galena Real Estate, JLL, Goadsby and CBRE acted for Federated Hermes on the deal.

A care home ‘overjoyed’ at being rated ‘Good’ by the Care Quality Commission (CQC) says it is hoping to be ‘Outstanding’ on its next inspection.
