International consulting firm Capgemini has joined a growing number of firms in taking up a new office space in Sheffield. The move sees the firm relocate from its previous South Yorkshire home of Rotherham, in order to improve accessibility for clients and staff alike.

Sheffield has seen a large influx of businesses into the region in recent months. The first half of 2017 alone saw 35 firms relocate or move into the Steel City, with the newcomers taking up 170,000 sq ft in that time – almost as much as for the whole of the previous year. The exponential growth, on the back of various investments into office space by local authorities, continued through the year – seeing the arrival of Mott MacDonald among others – and well into 2018.

Capgemini relocates Rotherham office to Sheffield

Now, French multinational professional services and business consultancy Capgemini, has relocated its Rotherham office to Sheffield. Capgemini’s former base in a former steelworks at Aldwarke, on the outskirts of South Yorkshire town Rotherham, saw the firm develop technology projects and manage IT systems for applications and infrastructures of its clients, and their associated business processes.

Capgemini has taken up residence in the 3,750 sq ft offices at ARBA Group's recently refurbished multi-million pound Meadowhall Business Park on Carbrook Hall Road. Other tenants at the sought-after business park, which is presently being marketed by the Sheffield office of Knight Frank, include Tuffnells, the GMB union, NG Bailey, Auburn Ainsley, Wilford Smith, and Eaton Commercial Property Consultants.

Cate Hames, corporate real estate manager at Capgemini UK, said: "We had been in our offices in Rotherham for over 20 years and it was time for a change. Meadowhall Business Park provides a great new location for our employees as it's easily accessible and close to the many amenities at the Meadowhall Shopping Centre."

Richard Burns, Director at ARBA Group, commented, "As a leader in IT services, Capgemini is at the forefront of innovation to address its clients' needs when it comes to the evolving world of cloud and digital, and we know our prime location and modern accommodation including raised floors, data linked open work areas and private offices, will provide a work area fit for the future."
