Ocado Retail, the world’s largest online grocery retailer, signed a 15-year lease to move into The Beam in 2020 and has since gone on to occupy two floors and create over 400 jobs.
Daniel Ward, Senior People Development and Quality Manager said;
“Sunderland is a fantastic city and the North East is a great place to host a contact centre.
“The Beam in particular is a statement building at Riverside Sunderland and is ideally placed. It’s transport links are fantastic, whether you’re coming by car, rail or bus, there’s a way for you to get to us and it’s right in the heart of the transforming city centre .
“Once all of the work is finished, we’re going to be really uniquely placed right on the riverside, by the bridge and close to the Sheepfolds, so it’s going to be a very attractive place to be.”
