Annapurna moves into ITV television centre on London’s South Bank

Annapurna Recruitment is moving into the historic ITV centre on the banks of the Thames as part of a short-term flexible leasing initiative by developers.

The company, which operates in the HR, change/transformation and IT sectors, will take about 6,000sq ft on level nine of the 25-story office building, which is part of the ITV London Television Centre. CO-RE, which owns the building with Mitsubishi Estate, has secured Annapurna until at least June 2021. The deal is CO-RE and Mitsubishi Estate’s first new letting at the 2.5-acre site since the outbreak of Covid-19.

James Ballard, director, Annapurna Recruitment, told Recruiter: “We are delighted to have acquired space in the former ITV studio building. It’s a bigger space, in the heart of London’s South Bank that allows us to continue our ambitions to significantly grow into the future, as and when the market allows.”

Referencing Annapurna’s online offering, the Business Transformation Network, Ballard added: “It also fulfils our desire to be in a space with studio capability for the BTN and the production of our content and events. It’s a delightful, historic building with a beautiful view of the river including St Paul’s, the London Eye, Westminster and the City.”

Annapurna will operate a rota system to enable their staff to be able to come in two to three days a week in separate groups from the beginning of August.
