Our offices | Sovereign House

"Now is a period of positive change. It's exciting what we'll look like in the future."

Hemali Thakar, Assistant Human Resource Advisor

Our Sovereign House office

Sovereign House has been a home to Leicester City Council for a long time. It now houses our Human Resources and Accounts team, as well as some of our Children’s and Adult Social Care colleagues. It is a busy office that sits at the heart of Leicester. As well as meeting rooms, break out areas and a kitchen, we are a short walk from Museum Square Park, which is a great place to get away from your desk in the summer.

The office is almost next door to our Bosworth House office and within walking distance of our other council offices. Being based in the city centre means you’ll find plenty of shops, cafés and restaurants close by. It also means getting here’s easy. We’re around a five-minute walk from Leicester train station and a ten-minute walk from the Haymarket Bus Station. If you’re a cyclist, there’s a secure bike storage area, as well as showers and changing facilities onsite.

In fact, the 2018 Good Growth for Cities index on urban economic wellbeing, places Leicester as the 10th highest ranking and one of the most improved cities out of the full list of 42 cities. The rankings factor in essentials from quality transport and secure jobs, to affordable housing and providing for the future through the potential to be in employment and earn a living.

As the 2nd fastest-growing city by population in the UK and residents hailing from over 50 countries we are truly an ethnically and culturally diverse city connected to the world and all the more exciting for it. Leicester is a vibrant and welcoming place with a rich mix of culture, heritage, sport, dining, and shopping sure to satisfy any interest.
