Convergys, a global leader in customer management services, has taken The Rocket, a 35,000 sq ft grade A office building in Newcastle’s Stephenson Quarter.
The Rocket will be home to Convergys’ new state-of-the-art contact centre, which is set to create 600 new jobs within this prime city centre location. Newcastle City Council and developer the Clouston Group formed a public/ private partnership to deliver ambitious plans for the £200m development, with Phase 1 including the Crowne Plaza Hotel which opened last summer, the Stephenson Quarter Car Park and 35,000 sq ft of Grade A office space at The Rocket.
Expansion plans announced by Convergys reaffirm the company’s commitment to the North East, with a significant footprint already on Tyneside employing 700 people at their Quorum Business Park base in Longbenton.
