Our UK operations are an important part of our business and I’m pleased to be able to say that our ambitious plans for next year and beyond will see us build our biggest office outside of the UK in York. This is a significant investment for us as a business; it will be our gateway to the north and once established has the potential to employ up to 500 people.
It marks a pivotal step on our journey. It will be the first office we’ve built for ourselves, and the plans for a progressive and high quality building are impressive. Work will start on-site early next year, and if all goes well we should move in during 2015. We already have a presence in York though, having moved into temporary office space next to the site and started to make local hires.
York will be the brightest expression yet of Hiscox. It will be a centre of innovation and best practice; the creative hub of the organisation in the UK.
