CCFS opens fourth office building in Wolverhampton

09 November 2018

New office will accommodate additional 250 staff as current headcount reaches 650.

Staff at Wolverhampton-headquartered Charter Court Financial Services (“CCFS”) have moved into its latest new office building as the specialist financial services group continues to expand its presence in the city.

The company, which was founded with 28 employees in one building on the Broadlands site in 2008, now occupies four offices at the business park and has grown its headcount to nearly 650, drawing staff and skills from the local community. CCFS has worked closely with a range of local suppliers to provide important products and services for the new building, including furniture and security systems.

The new state-of-the-art three-storey office building, which will accommodate approximately 250 people, boasts cutting-edge technology and environmentally-aware design, as well as on-site staff parking. CCFS’s commitment to providing the highest quality office accommodation is one of the reasons it has been ranked in the top 10 of the Sunday Times 100 Best Companies to Work For three years in a row.

CCFS’s growth is driven by its carefully planned diversification from its core activity of credit risk analysis into providing mortgages and savings accounts through its Exact Mortgage Experts, Precise Mortgages and Charter Savings Bank brands, working as one well-oiled machine. Its award-winning range of mortgages and savings products regularly feature at the top of the best buy tables.

Ian Lonergan, CEO of CCFS, says: “We have built a highly successful team here in Wolverhampton and a big part of that is down to creating a working environment in which we can thrive and feel proud of. Our ambition is to continue hiring and retaining great people who feel valued by the business and enjoy working here. That’s reflected in being voted for three years running into the top 10 of the Sunday Times 100 Best Companies to Work For. We hope that next year we'll be celebrating another top 10.”
