BOSTON-Temporary employment firm Kelly Services has signed a pair of leases, committing to deals in the city’s Financial District and in the northern suburban community of Burlington. The transactions total close to 12,000 sf of first-class office space.

In the larger of the two pacts, Kelly will occupy just under 7,000 sf at Ten/10 Post Office Sq., a 14-story office building owned by Broadway Real Estate Partners. Kelly is relocating from Exeter Plaza in Boston’s Back Bay district, agreeing to a term of seven years. The move reflects a growing inclination among Back Bay tenants to lease across town in the Financial District. The trend comes after a decade of reverse migration to the Back Bay that helped establish that area as the city’s second biggest office submarket at 12.8 million sf.

On the suburban front, Kelly is taking another 5,000 sf at New England Executive Park, where the firm secured a five-year deal that is a renewal and expansion. That complex is owned by Equity Office Properties, a division of Blackstone Real Estate Advisers.
