CGI today announced the opening of its Liverpool office. The new office is located in the South Edward Pavilion by the Albert Docks and is part of CGI’s investment plans for northern England.
The new base will initially host 70 CGI members, a large number of whom will be supporting the Disclosure and Barring Service (DBS) by providing IT services.
“We are pleased to be working with CGI who will be providing important IT services to support our safeguarding function” said Gary Blanchard from DBS. “The opening of their new Liverpool office shows their commitment both to working with DBS, and to the local area. We are looking forward to working with our new colleagues”
The opening was attended by Michael Herron (Vice President, Central Government) and dignitaries from local organisations including the Liverpool Chamber of Commerce, which CGI is now a strategic partner of, were also at the event.
“Opening a Liverpool office is part of our bigger plan to drive growth and investment in northern England and the North West in particular, following the opening of our office in Salford earlier this year” said Tara McGeehan, President of CGI’s UK and Australia Operations. “The North West and the Liverpool region is home to many talented individuals and we are excited about the potential of welcoming them to the CGI team.”
The opening in Liverpool will also see CGI’s continued implementation of its client proximity operating model which focuses on helping the communities in which its members live and work. CGI is a member of the Canal & River Trust Corporate Membership Programme and arrangements are being made to organise five volunteering days next year, with one or more in Liverpool itself. CGI has also joined forces with a local charity, the Royal Albert Dock Charitable Foundation whose work is focused on the education of children and young people utilising the range of expertise and resources available at the Albert Dock.
