Deloitte has announced its Manchester office will move to Salford’s Embankment in 2023.

Deloitte has agreed to a 10-year lease for a 43,000 sq ft of space at 100 Embankment, a new office building located above Salford’s Greengate Square beside Manchester’s historic Medieval Quarter.

Currently based at WeWork in the Hanover Building, Deloitte’s 1,050 people in Manchester will move to the new Grade A space in autumn 2023. The decision comes amidst growth for the firm both in terms of revenue in the region and headcount. 

Total people numbers have grown by more than 150 in Manchester in the past year and plans are in place for the company to increase its Manchester headcount to 1,800 by 2025.

The new office space 100 Embankment is rated ‘BREAAM Excellent’ for its sustainability credentials, in line with Deloitte’s commitment to becoming net-zero by 2030. The new Manchester office will also reflect Deloitte’s hybrid working model that offers a range of spaces to “help fuel creativity, wellbeing and generate more collaboration across the business”.

Andy Westbrook, practice senior partner for Deloitte in the North West, said: “We want to substantially grow our practice in the North West and Embankment is the perfect place for us to set down roots as we further commit to Manchester and the wider region. Our headcount has grown by more than 150 people in the last year alone and we have plans to recruit a further 750 people over the next three years.

“This new space also aligns with our commitments to sustainability, wellbeing and digital connectivity. We will create an inspiring and flexible workplace where our people and clients can connect and collaborate. Its central location makes the office easily accessible via a variety of viable transport options and I am looking forward to designing and shaping our new home with our people.”

The news comes as Deloitte recently announced 326 promotions across its North West practice ahead of its new financial year, including seven promotions to partner, one to associate partner, one to senior director, and a further 19 people to director.
