PROFESSIONAL services firm Ernst & Young has announced details of its planned move to new offices in Hull this year.
The firm, which can trace its roots back to the city for more than 100 years, will move to the newly refurbished Marina Court development on Castle Street, from its current premises on Lowgate. Ernst & Young employs 350 people in Yorkshire, across two offices in Leeds and Hull. Ernst & Young said the move is part of the firm’s wider investment plans in the region.
Yorkshire senior partner David Buckley, at Ernst & Young, said: “Our move marks our commitment to the market and investment in the regional economy. It is part of our wider plans to expand our offering in Yorkshire over the next five years.
“Companies in East Yorkshire are active in both local and overseas markets; as a global gateway for our clients we are ideally placed to connect them internationally to accelerate their growth plans.”
Hull senior partner, Alan Kirkman, who has been based in the city at Ernst & Young for 23 years, said: “Our move to Marina Court is a milestone in our long history in Hull. Marina Court will become a professional services hub in the city, delivering a modern environment for our people and clients in a central location, overlooking the Marina.”
