Burberry to move 300 jobs to Leeds
The company said the plans will generate significant cost savings for the luxury brand through the reduction in office space requirements in London, although its headquarters will remain in the capital.
Subject to consultation with employees, the office is due to open October. The move will bring together UK and EMEIA shared service teams from finance, HR and procurement, as well as some customer service and IT roles.
Christopher Bailey, chief creative and chief executive of Burberry, said: "This is an important move for Burberry as we continue to deliver on the strategic priorities we outlined last year. In addition to the benefits it will bring to the business, opening an office in Leeds reinforces our commitment to the UK and to Yorkshire, home of our iconic trench coat."
