“We are planning to build offices, studios and a training centre that will boost the local economy, create jobs and contribute to increased numbers of visitors to the city.” Dean Seddon

Plymouth, Devon (PRWEB UK) 3 May 2014

GOD TV purchased the three-building site from the Land Registry earlier this month and has already begun the huge task of dismantling hundreds of metal filing cabinets, once used to house records. A portion of each building has been cleared and temporary offices are being created to accommodate GOD TV’s first staff members, who hope to move in during June.

“We are pleased to have secured another site in Plymouth, previously used for archiving, and our plan is to redevelop it over the next few years into a GOD TV hub for Europe!” said GOD TV’s Head of Ministry Development, Dean Seddon. “We are planning to build offices, studios and a training centre that will boost the local economy, create jobs and contribute to increased numbers of visitors to the city.”

GOD TV is currently liaising with the Plymouth City Council to ensure all planning regulations are met. The sale was funded by GOD TV partners who, after visiting Plymouth, were impressed by the huge potential the vast premises offers the network for ongoing expansion.

One building will be used for GOD TV’s administration team and partner services call centre, which are relocating from current temporary offices. Another building will house GOD TV’s production team, Creative Services, Network Planning, IT and Web teams from Plympton, where they have been based for several years.

GOD TV CREATES 100 NEW JOBS IN PLYMOUTH

Since GOD TV embarked on its Revival Prayer Centre project in January 2013, it has created 23 jobs in the city. A further 45 positions will need to be filled at the new premises in Burrington Industrial Estate and another 32 positions will become available once GOD TV’s Revival Prayer Centre opens in Union Street in early 2015. This adds up to 100 new jobs for the South West.

The network is presently advertising several job opportunities in Plymouth at god.tv/jobs.

GOD TV can be watched throughout the UK on satellite (SKY/Freesat); via cable (Virgin); on the Internet (Roku/iPhone and god.tv); as well as through Freeview HD/Smart TV enabled units. A GOD TV App is also available on iTunes.
