IAM RoadSmart to move HQ to Welwyn Garden City
IAM RoadSmart is to move its head office from Chiswick to Welwyn Garden City, Hertfordshire at the end of the year.
The road safety charity, which until April was known as the Institute of Advanced Motorists, took the decision earlier this year to move out of its current offices in Chiswick and seek accommodation away from the Capital.
The move will be a gradual process over the coming months, with front-facing operations relocating to the new site first.
Sarah Sillars, chief executive officer of IAM RoadSmart, which celebrates its 60th anniversary this year, said: “As a charity it is important for us to make the best use of our resources to achieve our goals – to improve road safety in the UK by making better drivers and riders. Relocating will free up vital assets for us to achieve more than ever before.”
Commenting on the choice of location at Albany Place near the town centre of Welwyn Garden City, Sillars added: “Albany Place gives us flexibility to expand, with great links to London via the railway network and instant access to the rest of the country from the nearby motorways. We are looking forward to becoming a part of the Welwyn Garden City community and invite expressions of interest from residents looking for their next career move.”
