In a boost to the West Midlands economy, Advanced, one of the largest providers of software and services to the UK market, is to relocate its UK corporate headquarters to the iconic Mailbox, one of Birmingham’s largest commercial buildings, the company announced.
Following its acquisition by Vista Equity Partners in March 2015, the business has undergone significant transformation and investment in its people and solutions, creating a solid platform for further impressive growth. Advanced has a £316+m turnover, employs 3,042 people and serves more than 20,000 customers.
The relocation of its corporate headquarters to Birmingham will make the company one of the largest employers in the West Midlands. Birmingham is an international technology hub that develops and attracts digital talent, with a thriving innovation culture that makes it a natural home for Advanced. Advanced has based its regional headquarters in the Mailbox for several years, and this latest move will allow the company even greater access to the excellent talent in the region. The company is committed to providing new and exciting career opportunities, aligning with the Government’s levelling-up agenda and creating growth and prosperity across the region.
Since launching its Midlands regional office at The Mailbox in April 2016, Advanced has invested heavily into the region. The business has now grown to 533 registered employees in the Birmingham office, positively contributing to the jobs market in the West Midlands.
By consolidating its HQ in The Mailbox, Advanced will have greater access to digital talent to help further accelerate the business. Since January 2020, the technology company has created 343 additional jobs at its West Midlands HQ, which occupies 45,000 sq. ft. of space.
