100 Embankment. Completing a landmark development. Creating the perfect business location.
101 Embankment is a remarkable building in the heart of Manchester – and is now home to Swinton Insurance and its 1,500 strong workforce.
In 2017 Swinton relocated its Manchester headquarters to 101 Embankment and in doing so brought its business back to Salford, the city in which it began over 60 years ago.
The move to 101 sent a clear signal that the business was transforming into a bold and modern digital insurance company. Part of that evolution was finding the right location for both its Manchester headquarters and also its customer contact centre which is central to how Swinton’s business functions today. After a city-wide search it was decided that 101 Embankment was the perfect fit.
Embankment is at the heart of the city’s transport system and, since the move, feedback from Swinton’s staff has shown that they have found it easier getting to work, even at peak times which of course helps with recruiting and retaining the best talent. At the point where Manchester and Salford meet, the location is absolutely at the centre of everything both cities have to offer.
The modern 9-storey building sits on the edge of Manchester’s Medieval Quarter with superb views of Manchester Cathedral and offers 360 degree views of Salford and Manchester. It connects the past and the future which provided Swinton with the perfect inspiration for its transforming business.
We’re continuing this success with the introduction of 100 Embankment, its sister building. The location is outstanding, in the beautiful Medieval Quarter, touched by Manchester’s rich history, yet right next to all the essentials of modern working life: far-reaching transport connections, fantastic shopping, and a wealth of food and drink options. And the building itself is superb, with office space of the highest quality, complete with a spectacular roof terrace.
The place where everything comes together.
