RPS to lease two floors of its London headquarters


Share post:

The Royal Pharmaceutical Society (RPS) has decided to lease two floors of its east London headquarters to Ingeus, a business with services in employment, health, justice and youth.

RPS will retain three floors of the building, including its museum and library on the ground floor, as well as the two upper floors which will be used for events, collaborative working and team meetings.

The decision follows an announcement in April that the the Society was re-evaluating whether it needed to hold on to its current office space as homeworking was becoming the norm due to the Covid-19 pandemic. The Society also wanted to maximise value from its property and generate additional revenue which could “be reinvested into further developing our valued products and services”.

Ingeus runs the government-sponsored Restart Scheme to help people find jobs in their local area.

The current lease will run up to six years and around 60 Ingeus staff will share the office space at East Smithfield.

RPS CEO Paul Bennett said: “I am delighted that we have been able to find a suitable tenant for part of our office at St Katherine Docks. Ingeus provide a variety of services, amongst which is the diabetes prevention programme for the NHS, and we see them as an appropriate organisation with which to share our premises and look forward to welcoming them on site.”
