One of the city’s largest employers is planning to move staff out of town.
American Express has signed a new lease on its former site in Burgess Hill.
Staff from American Express’s European headquarters in 1 John Street, Brighton, will move into Sussex House, in Burgess Hill in 2015.
Bosses at the giant finance firm have yet to decide how many people will re-locate from Brighton or how many new jobs will be created.
The Burgess Hill was vacated two years ago and staff moved temporarily to Brighton.
A spokesperson for the firm said: “American Express can confirm that a new lease has been signed for the office in Burgess Hill and that a full refurbishment of the building will begin in the near future, with a view to repopulating the building in 2015.
“The Sussex House employees, who have temporarily relocated to Brighton, will move back into the building when the refurbishment is completed.”
