Ticket agent Ticketmaster UK has today (18 March) unveiled its new office in the Northern Quarter in Manchester.
The office is home to nearly 350 employees from across the region, working across a number of different departments from its call centre to customer service, IT, account management and HR services.
Servicing some of the company’s most high profile clients including the Rugby World Cup 2015, the Manchester office is integral to Ticketmaster’s operations.
The office was designed with fun, vibrancy and colour in mind, with inspiration taken from the local area. Employees were involved in the design, being given the opportunity to engage with the design process and donate their private ticket collections for a ticket wall mural which sits within the reception area.
Within the breakout space, decoration is provided by local graffiti artist Kelzo, there’s an area full of books and games and a relaxation space themed to make employees feel like they are at a picnic. There is also an elevator-inspired meeting room within the early 20th century lift cage converted with full-length vintage curtains and lighting fitted in tribute to the former drapery business in Sevendale House.
“Manchester is an incredibly important region for us; deciding to invest in Sevendale House is testament to this,” said Andrew Parsons, managing director, Ticketmaster UK. “We want to make sure that our employees have a great space to work in, so that they can feel comfortable and have fun at work. The office has been designed to fit our needs while injecting something a bit different into office life, with graffiti on the walls, space for our people to relax and our very own wall of tickets. We have had a presence in Manchester for the past 13 years and we look forward to continuing that in the future.”
