We have officially opened the doors of our brand new office located close to Deansgate and Spinningfields in Manchester.

The state of the art office, which covers six full floors and is home to 220 employees, has been designed to be a creative and inspiring space that brings to life our unique brand personality, as well as offering a space focusing on collaborative working.

Named ‘AO Manchester’ the office is home to our in-house multimedia team, a large proportion of our IT team as well as our sales team.  It will also accommodate future growth for the business across a range of disciplines.

The exciting new space offers an onsite Starbucks, as well as a subsidised canteen named ‘The Park Manchester’ in-line with our other sites, complete with its very own pizza oven that will be open every day for employees to use.

On the new office move, Michael Bates, our Chief Brand and People Officer stated;

“Manchester has become a hub of digital talent and as an online retailer we need to ensure that we have direct access to these skills. Having a presence here is really important to us, particularly following our partnership with the Northern Powerhouse earlier this year.”

“AO Manchester reaffirms our commitment to investing in Northern talent, offering our employees an office full of outstanding facilities, creative inspiration as well on a practical level, brilliant transport links.”
