He said: "Being in Basingstoke allows us to attract colleagues not just from the local area but also many PRs who previously faced lengthy commutes into London for work. Thanks to our flexible hybrid and remote working policies, we can also attract colleagues from even further afield.”

Touchdown has offices and partners in more than 20 countries across the USA, Europe, and Asia Pacific, with Basingstoke operating as its global headquarters.
