The move to Buckingham Gate in SW1 will provide a more central location for the business travel management firm.
The London team will be supported by new business travel consultants and UPT has embarked on an apprentice scheme and is working with universities to identify people who want a career in travel.
UNIGLOBE Preferred Travel is ranked in the top 15 best performing companies within the Uniglobe travel alliance, the world’s largest single-brand travel management group with more than 700 locations in more than 60 countries.
Managing Director John Burroughes said: “Despite challenging economic conditions we are continuing to invest in several areas of the business from technology, talent acquisition and geographical location. Better offices in London will allow us to deliver our growth plans while also securing a more central position, which is great news for our clients and suppliers.
“The move marks another exciting chapter for UNIGLOBE Preferred Travel as we expand into new markets and grow our client base in the sector moving into 2014.
“It is always great to add new talent and I am proud of our apprenticeship program which has proved highly successful for UPT to date. Giving young people an opportunity in the present job market is of vital importance.”
