Birmingham Post - - COMMERCIAL PROPERTY - Tam­lyn Jones Busi­ness Cor­re­spon­dent

AFINANCIAL ser­vices and ac­coun­tancy firm is mov­ing to a new HQ in Soli- hull.

Jer­roms is plan­ning to re­lo­cate from Shirley to the new ‘First’ of­fices on Blythe Val­ley Park.

The firm cur­rently has 100 staff but is aim­ing to in­crease this by 50 per cent over the next three years, prompt­ing the move to a new home.

Man­ag­ing direc­tor Mark Eden said: “We dou­bled our size in 2014 by merg­ing with two well-re­spected, ex­ist­ing busi­nesses in Kings Heath and Broms­grove and now this is a re­ally pos­i­tive step for fur­ther growth within the busi­ness.

“At­tract­ing and re­tain­ing the right tal­ent is go­ing to be key to our busi­ness suc­cess mov­ing for­ward and so the qual­ity of the work­ing en­vi­ron­ment is crit­i­cal.

“De­sign­ing ev­ery as­pect of the in­ter­nal of­fice space is a once-ina-life­time op­por­tu­nity and it will re­flect mod­ern work­ing prac­tices with dy­namic workspaces and larger meet­ing ar­eas per­fectly suited to both client and staff needs.

“The of­fice fit-out is due to com­mence shortly and we look for­ward to mov­ing onto the park later this year.”

It will join other ten­ants at the park such as fit­ness cloth­ing brand Gymshark, car deal­er­ship Ry­brook Hold­ings and in­dus­trial prop­erty firm Prol­o­gis.

First was spec­u­la­tively built on Blythe Val­ley Park by owner IM Prop­er­ties.

De­vel­op­ment direc­tor Lewis Payne said: “We were al­ways con­fi­dent we would at­tract a qual­ity oc­cu­pier to this build­ing.

“De­vel­op­ing the build­ing spec­u­la­tively was sim­ply a re­sponse to the mis­match be­tween sup­ply and de­mand for this type of space and this strat­egy has played out, with the build­ing go­ing un­der of­fer be­fore prac­ti­cal com­ple­tion.”

Joint prop­erty agen­cies for the park are Sav­ills and CBRE and Darby Keye acted on be­half of Jer­roms on the deal.
