Roc Search – Office search and acquisition

The Task

Roc Search are a growing recruitment consultancy with a head office in serviced offices in Reading town centre. They wanted to move into larger new grade A office space in Reading town centre on a traditional lease.

We were asked to undertake a search of the market for suitable offices space that met the needs of Roc Search. Image and potential room to expand was important to them. A number of options were presented and terms were negotiated on a short list of options. A part floor of The Blade was selected and solicitors instructed. We then ensured the legal process went smoothly and assisted with any further negotiations throughout the legal process. Commercial advice was provided to ensure Roc Searches best interests were covered.

The Outcome

A grade A office was secured on competitive terms within Roc Search’s timescale at 7th Floor The Blade.

“We have rapid expansion plans for the company over the next five years including opening a European and further regional offices. The company was founded in 2007 from Reading so we have always been keen for the HQ to remain in the town. With this in mind we have been searching for an office in which the HQ can double in size over the next twelve months and importantly offer our staff a modern and aspirational environment to thrive in. We are delighted with the acquisition at The Blade, it’s an iconic building we feel fits with the company and everybody is excited for the move shortly. We have also been delighted with the work and support Haslams have provided throughout the acquisition process”. Conor Roughneen, Managing Director at Roc Search.
