Last Monday saw Markco Media Ltd. move offices to a prime London location in order to facilitate rapid global expansion. The new offices close to Tower Bridge; a prime central location reflect the rapid expansion and financial success of the business. Located at Butler’s Wharf, the offices are a stone’s throw from Tower Bridge and close to London’s financial quarter.
The move has generated a much larger office space for Markco Media employees, in order to facilitate the increase in staff numbers. Following the huge success of MyVoucherCodes.co.uk, launched in 2006; Markco Media has now expanded into new territories across the globe including the USA, German, France, Spain and Brazil to name a few; vowing to be active in a further 10 countries by the end of 2011.
The new office move will facilitate the recruitment of up to 100 new employees to the Markco Media Ltd business. The roles will mainly be in areas such as marketing, SEO and developers, mobile developers and management teams for each country.
The move comes following a successful year for Markco Media Ltd, with total turnover for 2010 exceeding £10 million. 2010 also saw Markco Media’s Chairman and Founder, Mark Pearson, named in The Sunday Times Rich List; with his own personal worth now exceeding £60 million. In November 2010, Mark Pearson also appeared as a Secret Millionaire on the popular Channel 4 series, donating £115,000 of his own money to causes around Nottingham.
The new offices in central London have been designed with employee welfare in mind, with plenty of relaxation space; as well as stimulating, brightly-coloured designs adorning the walls. Employees have plenty of space between desks making for a light and airy feel, whilst a designated relaxation area, complete with football table and bean bag area, provide plenty of space for employees to relax and have fun.
Mark Pearson, chairman of Markco Media Ltd, commented on the move:
“We’re extremely excited to have moved base to central London, and are very much looking forward to the new opportunities and expansion this can facilitate. We have enjoyed rapid expansion over the past 12 months, and with this in mind we felt the need to find offices that reflect our success accordingly; as well as giving us enough room to recruit up to 100 new staff for new projects to be able to take off.”
“We hope that the location, close to the hub of London’s financial district, will place us deeper into the heart of financial matters within the UK; as well as attracting the high-calibre of employees that we’re on the lookout for. A great deal of attention to design and employee welfare had been put into the new building, and we can’t wait to realise the new opportunities that our new location will give us.”
