Blueprint and Worldline Partner to Deliver East Mids Workplace Transformation
We can today announce that we will be working with global payment services provider, Worldline, to deliver a complete transformation of its site in Beeston, Nottingham. This development comes as part of Worldline’s strategic vision to continue attracting and retaining the very best people.
The project, which we are undertaking in partnership with Derby based workplace tech and audio-visual solutions provider TecInteractive, will involve the transformation of 14,000 sq feet of office space that was previously configured as rows and rows of desks, into a space which places the needs of the people at the forefront of design. At the heart of the transformation will be a learning and invention suite, where Worldline will host industry colleagues and customers in a state-of-the-art immersive experience.
Globally, Worldline design and operate leading digital payment and transactional solutions across multiple sectors, primarily working across transport, retail & hospitality and financial services. The teams based at Beeston primarily support the UK rail network delivering rail operations and rail retail services. Worldline have been based at Beeston since 2009, delivering the technology that is the backbone of the UK rail system. The company currently has over 5,000 vacancies globally and will shortly bring in a new cohort of 50 apprentices who will be inducted through the Beeston site.
As the first industry player to contribute to the carbon neutrality of its activities in the payment industry , sustainability is central to Worldline’s business model. To meet this commitment Worldline has donated all old furniture to CollectEco, who will repurpose or recycle it to charities, schools, community groups, NHS trusts and other not-for-profit good causes.
Lee Jones, Project Manager from Worldline added, “We have worked closely with Blueprint Interiors and TecInteractive who have been brilliant and their advice has been inspirational. They have helped us to truly get under the skin of what our people need from their workplace. We are really excited to commence works and look forward to welcoming our people to use the refurbished spaces when the project is completed in June.”
Chloe Sproston, Creative & Commercial Director from Blueprint Interiors added, “The new office will provide range of flexible hybrid working solutions that can be adapted according to the needs of its people. Whether this involves collaborative sessions, focused work, or social interactions – the new space, the furniture and the workplace collaborative tech chosen can be easily reconfigured to suit all future needs. On top of this, Worldline are totally committed to ensuring their people feel safe returning to work.”
