Ikano officially open new office in Nottingham

Ikano Financial Services, one of the UK’s leading retail credit and loyalty providers, has opened its new UK headquarters and call centre operations on Station Street.

To reflect Ikano’s Swedish roots, on 26 September Leicester City Manager Sven-Goran Eriksson along with long serving Ikano employees will carry out a traditional log sawing to mark the occasion. After the formalities there will be a smörgåsbord for the invited guests to enjoy.

Based in Nottingham since 1994, Ikano has since grown its retail loans and loyalty business significantly, bucking the trend in financial services by delivering strong results in recent years.

Stephen Burnside, Managing Director of Ikano UK, said: "We’re delighted to further strengthen our business by moving to modern, well equipped offices which reflect our brand. We employ around 250 people in Nottingham and the new office is near to key transport links and city centre amenities, which is ideal for our workforce. Our offices have been decorated in a way that captures the Ikano spirit - simplicity, informality and sense of humour. The style is fluid and flexible to suit our business needs today and can be adapted for future change.”
