Fashion retailer Burberry Group, Inc., has announced its intention to open a new office in Leeds, strengthening its ties with Yorkshire. Subject to consultation with employees, the office will bring together UK, and Europe, Middle East, India and Africa (EMEIA) shared service teams from finance, HR and procurement, customer service and IT roles.
Creating a centre of excellence will make Burberry more productive and efficient by simplifying processes and fostering teamwork across functions. Moving roles to Leeds will also generate significant savings for the business by allowing Burberry to reduce its office space requirements in London where the company will remain headquartered. The office will open in October and it is expected that about 300 roles will transfer to Leeds.
"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," commented Christopher Bailey, chief creative and chief executive officer of Burberry Group plc.
British luxury fashion house, Burberry Group, Inc., focuses on and distributes trench coats, ready-to-wear outerwear, fashion accessories and more. (PA)
