Blackpool-headquartered Perch Group, an Engage Comms client and one of the UK’s fastest growing debt purchase and resolution firms, has opened a new office in Skipton, North Yorkshire. This follows the opening of a new Manchester city centre office at the end of last year.

The Group, which comprises debt purchaser Perch Capital, FCA-regulated debt resolution agency ACI, SRA-regulated TM Legal Services, and field services business Verify, has opened the new offices to accommodate its growing team based across the North of England and nationally. Its new Yorkshire premises is within the Broughton Hall Business Park on the outskirts of Skipton, offering employees a rural but still accessible alternative setting to its new City Tower office in Manchester.

Perch Group CEO Craig Hinchliffe said:

“If we are to achieve our vision to lead the UK debt purchase and collection industry by harnessing cutting-edge technology to drive ethical, efficient and data-driven debt resolution and delivering exceptional value to clients while positively impacting the financial well-being of individuals, we need to attract and retain top talent.

“We remain very proud of our roots in Blackpool and are keen to retain our headquarters there as we grow but we also recognise the need to give our industry-leading team well-connected alternative workspaces. The combination of our new Manchester city centre and Broughton Hall Estate locations offers the best of both worlds.”

The 3000-acre Broughton Hall Estate, recently renamed ‘Broughton Sanctuary’, is home to a Historic House and grounds, a number of holiday properties, the UK’s leading wellbeing centre, event venues, and the Broughton Hall Business Park with more than 50 companies employing over 600 staff. Perch Group’s new office can accommodate up to 40 existing and new team members for both day-to-day and hybrid working.
