ITV is to take a 13-year lease on Broadcast Centre in White City from the BBC.
It means all of its London based staff will for the first time be based at a single location.
The broadcaster says the move will support its smart working initiative and staff feedback on their preferred future working patterns.
ITV’s London staff are currently split between two central London locations (floors in Waterhouse Square in Holborn and in 200 Gray’s Inn Road) and WestWorks in White City, where ITV’s Daytime teams are based and where many of ITV’s shows are broadcast from.
The move will also contribute towards ITV’s previously announced cost saving target.
Carolyn McCall, ITV’s CEO, said: “Our people have made it really clear to us that they want to build on the positive aspects of their experience over the last 18 months to have a more balanced approach to office based and remote working. That balance will vary from team to team given the kind of work we do and we know that face to face collaboration is crucial for creativity and innovation – we’re looking forward to this new hybrid way of working.
ITV will begin to move teams to White City from early 2022, starting with teams in Waterhouse Square, with moving complete within a year. Around 2,000 staff will be moving to Broadcast Centre, where ITV is taking 120,000 square feet of office space.
