Vodafone open to post-Brexit headquarters move

VodafoneVodafone has said it may consider moving its headquarters once the UK completes its exit from the European Union, following last week’s referendum vote in support of leaving the EU.

In a statement, the company said that it is “not yet possible to draw any firm conclusions regarding the long-term location for the headquarters of the group.”

“Access to the emerging European digital single market should represent a significant opportunity for the UK, one of the world’s leading digital economies. It remains unclear at this point how many of those positive attributes will remain in place once the process of the UK’s exit from the European Union has been completed.”

Vodafone is one of the world’s leading telecoms firms with more than 400 million customers across Europe, the Middle East, Africa and Asia Pacific. The company reportedly employs some 13,000 people in the UK, with the group’s headquarters based in London.
